It’s all fine and dandy to give gifts, be love is way more important!!
I think I finally got in the holiday mood. It took me long enough right?! Lmao, I finally ordered my son’s gifts and I have to pick them up. My daughter’s cash is ready to go, I just need to get her card.
Insert the Black Family Christmas Anthem…
Act like y’all don’t know. Lmao. I know some of y’all was singing it!! Probably got the CD on lock or at least have it save on the laptop.
Anyways, I’m not cooking a big meal, partly because I’m broke and no one is coming to my house. LOL, if I wasn’t broke I’d probably cook a big dinner. But I guess I will do a big breakfast for my crew. I’m debating on whether or not going to the movies is an option. So before I forget I would like to wish you all a Happy Holidays, however you choose to celebrate it!!
From my family to yours…
“People making lists, buying special gifts,
Taking time to be kind to one and all
It’s that time of year when good friends are near,
And you wish you could give more than just presents from a store
Why don’t you give love on Christmas Day
Oh even the man who has everything
Would be so happy if you would bring
Him love on Christmas Day,
No greater gift is there than love” ~ The Temptations “Give Love On Christmas Day”
Yes, I’m really trying hard to get myself in the Christmas spirit. This is the first time, I’m last minute shopping and I’m just not there yet. I could say it’s because I lost my mom last year around Thanksgiving. Maybe, but I gotta get myself in the mood. Maybe, when I start wrapping gifts.
My daughter is older and all she wants is money. My son doesn’t understand Christmas yet, so he won’t be excited either. I’m still getting him gifts, I will probably be more excited than them both. I will make a big breakfast and even cook dinner as well.
Are you in the Christmas spirit?
The holiday time is here, Thanksgiving, Christmas followed by New Years. Most of us spend this time with loved one and friends. But if your like me you dread this time but love it at the same time. Well all understand that we have dysfunctional family members. That one relative that has no filter, the drunk, the drug addict and that one crazy (papers included) family member. So why do we invite them? Because they are family.
The bad thing is when your bring the new boo or friends around you find yourself explaining you family one member at a time. LOL. Don’t act like you don’t do it, we all do. But no matter how much preparation you give them you really just don’t know what will happen this year.
Case in point. Last year I wasn’t feeling good but I was determined to spend Thanksgiving with family. And that is how the fight started. As sick I was, I was willing to exchange fist with my sister over my daughter. No I don’t want to explain the details but I’m glad no one outside of family showed up that day. LOL
This year I’m hosting thanksgiving. I’m tired of cooking a lot of food, only yo travel with all that and 2 kids. I’ve invited family and friends. So pray for me, I’m hoping for a peaceful holiday. Plus side is I feel healthy. LOL
