Where Can I Buy Hgh

April 14th, 2009

My friend Jamie wrote a blog post Where Can I Buy Hgh,  on a topic I had been kicking around in the back of my mind on Easter Sunday. Hgh ebay, I chose to rant about the bat in the wall instead, but when I read her post and started to formulate the world’s longest comment, Hgh overseas, Hgh craiglist, I decided to just write about it here after all. 

I think religion and how to celebrate holidays are tricky subjects for many parents, especially when the parents’ religious beliefs differ or when the family does not attend services/belong to an organized religion, 150mg Hgh, 500mg Hgh, yet wants to have something to celebrate at festive times of the year. We fall into both categories, 100mg Hgh, Hgh japan, as do many people we know. 

In our non-religious household, we celebrate the arrival of Spring at Easter-time, 200mg Hgh. 20mg Hgh, We celebrate light, warmth and gathering with family at Christmas-time, Hgh coupon. 750mg Hgh, A winter holiday of light and a spring holiday celebrating the life cycle of birth, death, 30mg Hgh, Hgh india, and rebirth/renewal exist in many traditions in addition to Christianity, so it makes sense to us to mark these holidays, Hgh canada. And whether it’s because we grew up with it or because of some innate human need to imbue certain times of the year with religious significance, it just feels right to be celebrating at these times. 

Families are all about compromise and blending, Where Can I Buy Hgh. Hgh us, Holidays, to us, Hgh usa, Hgh mexico, are all about family and tradition. While a Solstice celebration would probably be more in line with where I am on the religious/spiritual spectrum, Hgh uk, Hgh paypal, Matt and I chose instead to pass along many of the Christmas traditions we grew up celebrating in our own families. Same with Easter: we don’t go to church but we do dye eggs and get together with both our families, 40mg Hgh. 10mg Hgh, By incorporating some of the popular elements of these holidays, I feel we honor the families/traditions we come from, Hgh australia, 1000mg Hgh, and by adding our own unique elements and explanations, I feel we are adapting these traditions in a way that is meaningful for us, 250mg Hgh. Where Can I Buy Hgh, (I look forward to further “customizing” our family celebrations as the kids get older. 50mg Hgh, This whole topic is something I very much want to discuss with them, when we get there.) 

I do wonder sometimes if it seems hypocritical or even offends people that we celebrate Christmas and Easter without much mention of Jesus. When we talk about Jesus, we describe him as a great teacher and leader, who emphasized peace and love. We’ve told Siena that Christmas celebrates his birth and Easter commemorates his death. (Sort of like a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, she probably thinks.) 

As she grows older and learns more of the story behind these days, she will come to understand that many, many people see Jesus as much more than a great leader, Where Can I Buy Hgh. And she may decide she agrees with them. Or she may decide she believes something totally different. We just want to be sure she is the one deciding what feels right for her. (Elliot too, of course, assuming he ever sits still long enough to learn anything about any religion.)  

The last thing we would want to do is offend anyone who sees these holidays as sacred and our interpretation as irreverent, but we feel like this is a good starting point. We've tried to be age-appropriate and sensitive to all beliefs in our explanations. We look forward to our kids' experiencing many different religious traditions and teachings, and we look forward to hearing what they think and what answers will resonate with them.

    OK – I’ll bite. I think what you’re doing sounds respectful. I appreciate this sentence –

    “When we talk about Jesus, we describe him as a great teacher and leader, who emphasized peace and love.”

    I can appreciate that not everyone shares my beliefs. But I respect their beliefs – so I want to be respected in turn. What bothers me is when my brother announces on Christmas eve how deluded we all are and how Jesus was a sham. That is not respectful. But you are not doing that – you are being respectful.

    And I don’t think the Easter bunny or Santa Clause have anything to do with the religious aspects of the holidays, so I figure the more the merrier when it comes to that.

    So, to sum up, I think you are doing a good job – by teaching your children to respect diverse points of view – which is what all parents, religious or not, should do.

    A stick situation — when the grandparents are religious, but the parents are not. We run into this issue at each holiday; sometimes we let Avery go to church with her grandparents and we listen we she relays what she has “learned” from Granny about Jesus and how important it is to pray (or when a night time phone call to Granny ends with Granny saying “Don’t forget to say your prayers tonight” – and we don’t pray in our house).

    I think you and Matt have taken a really great approach… and perhaps you should write some sort of “how to” book. A leaflet even? No? Just blog posts? Ok.

    Amy – I’m glad you think our approach sounds respectful. Having seen the disrespect flow both ways (religious people telling non-religious people that they are wrong/damned/have no morals, and non-religious people mocking religious people for being credulous or ignorant or just kind of dorky), it is a big deal to me that my kids never make another person feel bad about their beliefs. I hope if Matt and I seem positive and enthusiastic about what other people are doing, the kids will learn to appreciate and respect all different traditions.

    Sara – good point: it’s not just parents who can have different religious beliefs, but other family members/role models. In Chapter 4 of my how-to book or bullet point 7 of my leaflet, I would say the situation with your parents gives you a good opportunity for Avery to learn first-hand the importance of tolerance. She will grow up watching people she loves make very different choices about religion. Yet she will see that your family members still love each other even if they disagree, and she will see how important it is to be respectful of everyone’s choices.

    P.S. Am not trying to be pompous — that stuff about my how-to book is clearly meant to be a joke. I don’t pretend to have all the answers here — just sharing what we have done so far and some of the reasoning behind. Also, my hope in writing this was to hear what others think — please weigh in, if you’re reading!

  5. Amy Says:

    Yes – I have seen the disrespect flow both ways too – and I make sure I do not particpate. It gets on my nerves to no end to hear religous people pull that crap – and I have trouble understanding how people think that is what God would want them to do. I strive to be open-minded – and I plan to raise my kids to do the same.
