Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Holiday Blessings Are Once Again Upon Us...

“For whatever you celebrate this festive season (Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Santa and the gift of giving and receiving, a new year or just being alive) I would like to wish you and yours the merriest and brightest it can bring.

Ho! Ho! Ho!  Well, not quiet yet.  Recently at work I had a slow day and went ahead and did my Christmas decorations a little early.  I actually feel like celebrating the holidays for the first time in years.  I feel healthy, I'm looking at getting my life on track, my brother has a wonderful new girlfriend that fits so nicely in our family and I actually had a date that went very nicely last night.  With my decorating there were several people who felt that I was a little too early and one person even started a conversation about how we never decorate for Thanksgiving anymore, that its a lost holiday.  Well there are some decoration up in the office for Thanksgiving but fall decorations are not really my thing.  I also feel that we should all be thankful for our blessings each and every day not one day a year.  It's nice to sit down and do the family thing, but how many people do that anymore?  It's gotten so commercialized it's pathetic. I am actually looking forward to being off on Thanksgiving this year.  I have opportunity to work it and it's great money but I think this year relaxation and a movie like I did days of olden sounds wonderful.  The one thing I have always believed and always will is that every day is a blessing.  I may not feel my best but the good Lord blessed me to be here another day and looking at it I try to find the bright and shining stars and thoughts rather than the dark and bleak.  None of us have a perfect life but we have the life we have and if you look you can find the love and happiness within it.  

So Merry Christmas!  Happy Thanksgiving!  Happy Hanukkah!  Blessed Kwanzaa and may Santa bring me lots and lots of stuff... I mean may Santa be kind to you all.  ;-)
