It has been a long, tiring, stressful week. There so much to do and so little time to accomplish everything but I was able to pull it through. All my godchildren's gifts and presents for loved ones are all wrapped under the Christmas tree. The Holiday Menu has been selected and the ingredients were already bought. The only thing left undone is the last minute house cleaning.
I'm so looking forward to the four day non working days! Even if my family is just staying here in the Metro unlike the rest of the country who are on their way to the province to celebrate with loved ones the important thing is our family is complete and happy. My body really needs to recuperate from the stress (and my wallet needs to rest also because it's severely depleted from all the gifts I have to buy. :) ) I badly need sleep and some time for relaxation. I missed watching television, checking the internet for the latest casino online games and bonding with family and friends.
But after all the external preparations that we all do for Christmas, let us not forget the real reason for the celebration which is the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ. Let us remember to prepare also our hearts for His coming so that He has a place in our lives.
A Blessed and Merry Christmas to everyone!
