Hey beaugorgeous! turns out I did miss blogmas day 7 and 8 but I am still trying to keep up and post as often as I can till Christmas Day! Well, I hate excuses but it has something to do with the fact that I still have to work twelve days of Christmas plus the ton of task I needed to do, not related to Christmas comes jingle-ling all the way. Bhoy, I must have been that naughty LOL!
And yes, 2016 wasn't always bright and breezy. There were things that knocked me off my feet and for a moment I feel like I wanted to stay there, knockout and beaten. But then I remember two years ago, two days before Christmas, I was on my hospital bed getting chemo when I told myself that if I ever get a chance to be anywhere but the hospital and the pain, then that would be great enough. So now, even when things are sometimes too much to handle and discouraging I always find it in my heart to be grateful for the little things that makes me happy.
Well anyways, I (we) decided to keep it low key this Christmas. Not too much fuss but not too deprived either ;) and since that there will be just the three of us this year, we kind of opted for a quiet, unplugged time at home keeping things simple yet merry.
And yes, I also began to notice tiny bits of surprises each day like it's Christmas morning. And these for me are things that makes life worthwhile.
HAPPY DECEMBER MORNING EVERYONE AND REMEMBER...
