Busy days took me away from my other self (the blogger wannabe side) and my blogs. Today, before the year ends, and with more lax time, I’ll take the opportunity to update this blog.
Christmas Season, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ is the most joyous days of the year not only to us Catholics but as well as other religions. It is the time to celebrate and be thankful that our Savior is born, it is the time that more blessings come our way.
What better way to be thankful for the blessings that the Lord had given us? Share. Share the blessings and make the people around us happy as well. It is not about the monetary value of the gifts we give, but the thought of giving, especially from the heart is what matters most.
This year, like every other year, we wanted to make our two house employees happy by giving them not only the cash bonus, but as well as grocery gift basket and other gifts, as a gesture of gratefulness for taking care of our children when we are not around, for helping us in their own special way.
Christmas is also about spending time with our family, having a simple Noche Buena Feast at home, the tradition I have known since childhood and the tradition I want to continue with my own family. But having a husband working on shift, may have hindered us from having our feast at home, but not the “spending the special day together”.
On Christmas Day, after husband’s duty, we all went to the Divine Mercy Shrine in El Salvador, Misamis Oriental to attend the 3PM mass, sadly we were late. At least we were able to kiss and hold the Holy Child Jesus Christ after the mass.
My SIL, husband’s sister also invited us for a Christmas Day dinner at her home. Simple dinner and a first time get together with them on a Christmas Day is one special moment. Thanks for inviting us over Ate Aydz.
By 8PM, we’re one our way home, and who was excited to see us home, none other than our crossbreed terrier guarding our house while we are all away.
It’s A Merry Christmas 2015 for Us! Praying for a Bountiful New Year.
