"Crazy how 2 Christmases ago, I felt so lost because that was my first Christmas without my grandfather.. The number 1 person in my life who ever guided me.. That year, my immediate family and some of the extended family were fighting and grew to actually hate one another.. Of course, I was caught in the middle trying to mediate things.. Resulting in spending a Christmas alone.. In my car. I never really understood why I always fought to gain love from people who just simply can’t love me.. It was probably the worst Christmas of my life, by far. This year, I took initiative to make this Christmas a good one especially for the children and elders in my life.. Because I want them to know that regardless of anything that ever happens, I am here.. I love them.. & all I care about is their happiness. In my heart, they will never be forgotten or pushed aside. This was also the first Christmas that I adopted a few angels from the Salvation Army.. 3 grandpas in honor of my grandpa and also 1 son.. It felt amazing to give back.. To complete strangers in which all they ask for is throw blankets, cross word puzzles, walking canes, toy car for the child.. Seriously?! I cried reading their wish lists.. Their necessities were there wishes.. That will be my goal and new year resolution.. To actually take care of myself and loved ones.. Help some in need.. Rely less on materialistic things to make me happy.. And smile more.. Because despite all the pain I’ve felt over the years, I have many reasons to smile and to be grateful for the life given to me.. Amen."
