Tributing The Ones You Love


For many people… Christmas is the time of reflection. It’s when we pay attention to give credit where credit is due to employees, family and friends. FOR SOME PEOPLE… it’s an overwhelming time of year due to the “Commercial” nature of the holiday. Some of the updates on Facebook have annoyed me greatly as you see people stressed out thinking, buying, and then wrapping… A HUGE BUILD UP for a few minutes of suspense on Christmas Morning… There’s a huge let down in the end.

For me this year, like most years… it’s never about the gifts. YES… I am known to be extremely cheap and set in my ways with it. There’s a better feeling of touching someone’s heart with kindness than a gift that is given because you felt stress over it.
Ideas that reach the heart or notes of Thank Yous. A plate of cookies. Some homemade crafty ideas. A picture of something that means something to you. You know the gift that is best given is the one you hate to part with but know whomever will get it will see the joy too!
My gift to Diva Dan is simplistic, not cheap, but will keep giving for the years to come. It will give him joy for a part of the year. Give him something to feel proud of on a regular basis. A gift that to many seems ridiculous. To me… it’s perfect. The gift is useless in this season, so there’s no immediate excitement of planning where it will go… but I know when the Spring Hits… it’s the first thing on the list to accomplish.
I have decided to team up my gift with 13 Tributes through video and music. What people don’t realize is that the new videos lately on FABULOUSBYCHOICE are my complete photos. I have placed an entire month into a movie making program. It has selected random pics, added the effects and music. The 3 – 5 Minute Videos are a whole month summary of what happened. To Diva Dan and I… these are backing up our already great memories. To us… this is priceless as memories have no set value.
Good Luck on Your Christmas Treasure Seeking… think hard, as your gift that hits a heart is usually simplistic, cheap, and right before your eyes… just open your eyes and see it.
