'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house/not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...
I don't know about y'all, but on the night before Christmas (and the days preceding) at MY house - something is ALWAYS stirring. Lol! The past few days have been full of excitement - from the 12/21/12 Mayan apocalypse mess, to holiday shopping, to the planning and execution of a get-together HomieLoverFriend and I had for some friends and fam, things have been hectic but fun.
Christmas isn't always the most wonderful time of the year for me, but I make the best of it by taking the opportunity to make other people happy. This year, I have plans for family, friends, and strangers - and I hope that I absorb some of the holiday spirit by seeing other folks smile.
I hope that y'all who celebrate have a very merry Christmas, and for those who don't, I wish you love, peace, and happiness - blessings that we all deserve regardless of religious leanings. If this time of year is a difficult struggle for you, I have you in my thoughts and hope that you find a bright light that makes these holidays a bit better than you expected.
Now, it's time for me to do some cleaning, some gift wrapping, and watch the Christmas episodes of Martin, A Different World, and Living Single! Thank you to every single one of you who chooses to read, comment, and share my words - I greatly appreciate it, and the love gives me the warm fuzzy holiday feelings all year round :)
Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and above all, be happy, healthy, and blessed!
