This year I decided to treat myself and just slowly buy/pre-order/reserve things and then have them shipped to me on Christmas day (these shops store your buys so you can have them shipped in bulk). I'm super excited to actually have a loot this year, which is something I never thought I'd get to do!
But the best gift was from my mom. I'd been telling her that I wanted a PS4 and because she'd also use it, that we'd split the cost. But after having to incur in some bills and what not, it just didn't happen.
Today my mom told me that she hasn't forgotten about the PS4 and that we'd get to it eventually.
That little statement to me was the best gift. I am utterly blessed to just be. If only today.
I feel this in my very soul. I usually make due with paying bills and sustaining this mess of a life I'm leading but it's literally living paycheck to paycheck.
Not only that, my check has had trouble getting to me at least 10 times now, without exaggeration. So I've learned the hard way to leave a substantial amount in my account just in case someone just "casually" forgets to bring my check.
