I must say that you’re looking particularly inviting and sparkly this year. It took me extra long to flip through you from cover to cover. And once I was through, I was sure that I had to flip through each page once more… and was equally as sure that I needed every single item pictured there.
And for a moment — just for a moment — I was a bit sad that I couldn’t have it all. That I live by a budget. That the shiny, new products you offered wouldn’t all fit under the Christmas tree.
But then I realized that I might not have beautiful paintings and mirrors hanging on my walls, but I do have walls to a nice home that help keep me warm and safe. And I might not have those adorable, fuzzy slippers with the shiny ribbon; but I do have thick socks to slip into after a long day at work. I have a perfectly fine winter coat, a cute purse, and a hair straightener that all work just fine. I really don’t need two of everything. Nor do I need a dish set for every single season, holiday, and weather pattern.
And you know what? You might still be fun to look through. But I realize now that I really already have everything I need to celebrate a very merry Christmas this year. So I’m sorry, but I will not be ordering anything from you at this time
You do serve very nicely as a coaster, however. So thank you for that.
