Hellooo …….. lovely people, and Merry Christmas!
Yes, Christmas is finally here and it really does feel a lot like Christmas . I wasn’t really sure how I was going to be feeling today, but seeing my daughter get so excited and enthusiastic for Santa to drop off presents just made it all better. She’s a lot older and so she gets the excitement and the purpose of today. She also couldn’t wait to open all her gifts seeing that she had to wake us up so early this morning. I ain’t mad at her though …….
Something about the season, the carols, the spirit of love and giving that makes this season so magical, and no matter how you’re feeling, it just gives you the hope and joy you desire. We love Christmas! Well, for me and my family at least. All my childhood memories came rushing in and that just keeps me so grounded, and so getting in the spirit isn’t really that hard for me to do. I have a very energetic and positive personality trait for which I’m always thankful, and that which come in handy when the little ones are involved. I try to kid up with them and I think I do a pretty good job… .. lol. It sure is Christmas!
We had a very exciting Christmas Eve to start off the celebration. The day being Sunday made the celebrations even better and more merry. We all know some of the best memories to have are those of our childhood Christmas festivities and so for me it is imperative to give the best ones to my kids which they can pass on through generations to come. Besides, it gives them something to look forward to besides wrapping and opening of gifts.
We spent Christmas Eve at Church, surrounded by family, friends and people who truly care and love us regardless. A community that teaches to love, to share and to appreciate the gift that God gave us. For my kids to know and understand the true reason and meaning of Christmas is priceless! They even took part in the performances — Bible verse recitals, singing Christmas Carols and the birth of Jesus’s skit. So enlightening, delightful and so refreshing to see. That is what Christmas is about! It is always something the kids really enjoy and I know they are having the time of their lives and time of the year.
We will be spending the Christmas evening with one of my friends, who is hosting Christmas dinner this year . We’re definitely looking forward to that. So let the celebration continue…..
My family and I would like to wish everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hope you having the time of your life with your family.
Thank you all for stopping by today. One more week till the year is over, let’s make it count.
