Of course, I’m riding with the bandwagon. Why shouldn’t I? It’s Christmas! The time to bring cheer, spread love, and think warm and happy thoughts about family, friends and loved ones. I’m going to do that now before I get busy with family stuff later.
First off… MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! I wish you all the happiest this holiday season. And if you’ve one reason not to be happy… I guess all other reasons to be happy could cancel that out. After all, just being alive should make you happy, right?
So, how does one have a Merry Christmas? Let me count the ways…
Had been more than a couple of years since we spent Christmas together on a vacation spree. Last time was in 2008 when we went to Hong Kong. This time, we spent it in Dumaguete and Cebu and now, in Manila. Thank you God, for bringing us together. Thank you for keeping us together in spirit the rest of the year. This goes for the rest of our family and relatives who are scattered around the country and the globe – my foster brothers, aunts and uncles, cousins, second cousins, etc. etc. to the nth degree of consanguinity.
There’s my BFF Queng (Carla G/Angel B), my sweets Denise (the Sentinels Diyosa Elise), the Bitches of the Oblong Table (Gay & Pam), my Wiccan Sisters (BARATBEYT!!!), Inday Ivy, friends from long ago who’ve stood by me throughout the years (my kumareng Dinky and my Powerpuff Gals Te & Koni, and more), new friends I found on Multiply, FB and Twitter who made my social world all the more colorful, the friends I’ve made in my new home in Dumaguete/Sibulan, heck, even the parents and the rest of the family of my closest friends are there… I can go on and on and name names and still forget to mention so many more. Hayy… Such blessings these people are. Such joy. 🙂
I’ve mentioned this time and again. I’m single, never been married, never been pregnant, but I do have kids. Lots of them. I might not be as close to many of them as I am with some, I’m not in touch with all of them but some, but I still love them all. Mommy/Nanay wishes she can hug you all tonight. Virtual hugs will do for now, I guess. 🙂
Okay, so it’s not very lucrative but it’s my fault. I chose to go freelance but I’m just soooo…. lazy. ahehe! But my publisher, my editors, they’re still the best! I love you Bookware!
My life is blessed. Thank you, Lord. And as we await the coming of the New Year, I wish everyone a happy and love-filled season.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
