I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and are having a joyous love filled festive holiday season.
Huh, a thought just hit me as I am sitting here. As Christians we see Christmas as a very special time. It is to mark the birth of Baby Jesus. Sadly, the reason for the occasion seems to be lost on many but that is not my thought right here. It is a traditional celebration through which we put up with and even “battle” the crowds in the various shopping centers searching for that just right gift. OK finally to my thought. What is you are a follower of one of the other Great Faiths. I don’t know this but I imagine to some Dec. 25 is just a regular day. I am trying to imagine their frustration levels as they put up with the crowds in the stores. Never thought of that before.
Had a quiet but very good Christmas. Vi worked Christmas day so I was home alone for most of it. Went over to Vi’s mum’s for the big traditional meal at about 5:00, delicious. They say you “better watch out” you know the carol, santa is always watching to see if we are being good or bad. I think I must have fooled him as he was indeed very good to me.
Our festive celebration part was actually on boxing day. Daughter Shauna, hubby Jake came with Shauna carrying my very young grandchild. Now this grandchild is so young Shauna is still actually carrying him/her in her tummy. We were joined by friends Bruce and lily with their daughter Amanda. It was a very special time. The meal Vi prepare was delicious as always with there being enough food to feed about 20 extra people.
I have started on a couple of extra posts, the deep feelings kind. Will try to get them up shortly.
