Where you at?
After all the hullaballoo of the holiday season, where you at?
I find myself going back to normalcy of life. At least for the next 11 months again until next Christmas season. As we grow older, we try to find the real meaning of Christmas, and starting a new year. As a child, Christmas meant gifts, holidays, no classes. But now, we make our own meaning ourselves. We can take a long holiday from work over the holidays, but what does that actually mean? Does it mean spending time with family? We can buy our own presents, things we actually like. But does that make us a better person?
I am just really praying for a better year ahead. Christmas was not spent with relatives, but I was with my immediate family (hubby). It was a time spent away from the usual work environment but only for a few days. I am thinking, the first day of the new year allows us to hope for happier and better days ahead.
Wishing everyone a Happy 2009!
