Because I am Christian, however lapsed, on this day of the year I believe that a poor, homeless virgin bore a child who is the hope of salvation and peace on earth to all who have faith.
To honor this day, I honor my family the traditional way, by eating everything in sight. Three event meals and two brunches later, I am just full of honor.
It’s amazing how much I complain about anything Christmas. As I do shopping, cooking, cleaning, mailing, Christmas songs on the radio, whatever, gripe, gripe, gripe.
Then the actual day arrives and we all have a great time. We’re together, healthy and happy. I am the luckiest person on the planet. It certainly isn’t anything I’ve earned
I guess it’s just my miracle.
I’m new to lj – but I have really enjoyed the people I’ve met here. I hope you are having a great day, whatever you are doing.
I’m going to lie on the couch with my nearest and dearest and watch dvd’s in a food coma.
