Happy Holidays

I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy holiday!!

I just heard one of my favorite Christmas songs. It's "The Little Drummer Boy" by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. I remember this Christmas special (the show) from childhood. I always felt bad that this little boy didn't have any presents to give the baby Jesus. The character always looked cold in his worn rags and shorts. I also remember my father explaining to me that this small child gave his all and that was his present.

Here's to giving your all now and through the next year.

Christmas Is Here

Christmas is here...but I'm too exhausted to notice.

I have wanted to put up the Christmas decorations, but I am too tired to go up into the attic to look for the decorations, even though I put them up there and know exactly where they are. I want to be all full of Christmas spirit, but I'm tired.

I do get excited though when I shop for my nephews and nieces. It's only those moments when I get energized and really want to go all out. I can't wait to see the look on their faces when I give them their gifts, or when I sit down and have the midnight dinner with my family. I also can't wait for Christmas mass. I love the homily, sermon and choir.

I'm getting a little energy writing this post, about not having energy. So maybe when I get home from work tomorrow, I'll start bringing down those boxes of lights and ornaments.
