Christmas is my most favored Holiday of the year! This year and last year have been met with difficult times. They weren’t the only difficult Christmases we had. But we had a nice time. God is good!!
I often ask why the most sever issues in life come around during holidays? The answer I came up with is there is to much pressure to make the Holidays perfect. So please sit back, and enjoy the precious time you get with your love ones, if possible. and don’t fret the little mistakes. The badly wrapped gifts, the gifts you forgot to mail, the cooked meals. If you are alone then do something for yourself, make the day memorable, and enjoy it!! Everyone- Enjoy the little moments.
Every day is a precious gift given to us. Don’t let let depression, loneliness, or fear, keep you from finding the little joys in life. Dont wast anger and stress over things that shouldn’t matter bit focus on what does matter. Make the most out of what you are given and have and appreciate those and what you have in your life because you never know what tomorrow will bring.
The best gift you can give is Love and Support to one another. We are all waiting for someone or something. Don’t give up if it’s what your really want. Waiting is hard but while we wait we grow and learn new things about ourselves and our life around us. When the time comes and we achieve the goal at hand. It is better than ever imagine.
God bless you today and Always!

Hello Fellow friends,
Well, I am home now but I had a wonderful time with my man and his lovely family. I learned so much about him and all of them. We did so much with and without his family. My man and went on dates and walks. It was really nice. I got him some shirts he liked and some collector books he wanted. He got me a Totoro purse and wallet and some lotion and body spray too. It is not about the things, to me, the gifts are special because they are from the one I love! As for the rest of the family, they have to wait for Christmas…
When we spent time with his family as well as doing outings and everyday tasks.. We didn’t go to the beach or Disneyland but we did go to Medieval Times! I hadn’t been there since I was thirteen for my friend’s birthday in Florida. Here are some of the pictures I took. I hope they don’t mind me sharing them.
One weekend we watched movies and games. I even exchanged birthday and Christmas gifts as well with him. One of the weekends we had an outdoor bbq, watched a movie on a projector and did some rock painting, played soccer and other outdoor games.
I really enjoyed the one on one time with his mom too. We had a nice heart to heart talks. She even gave me a very sweet heartfelt gift from Starbucks as a surprise one night! It is special for so many reasons. It has all the state specialty emblems, I collect cups, it was a surprise, it showed she cared and was thinking of me. I wish I could have done so much more for them! I wish I had got to know his dad more tho too.
I stayed for almost three weeks. When I had free time alone worked on writing my books in progress.
I can’t believe it is only a few days from Thanksgiving!! I look forward to coming back there often. It helps that the man I love has family in California. I totally felt at home with his family and in California. I was really nervous about staying with them but I think it went well. There was so much more I had wanted to do with them and for them. I miss them all so much. His family is my family as well. That’s how I feel in my heart. I never felt uncomfortable or out of place. I just wish I could bring them all back with me! It would sure make things easier for us all. California is one of the few states that I wouldn’t mind moving to. Though I am unable to take permanent residence there mainly because of my Medical specialists and health care requirements.
I can not believe I had to say goodbye. It really broke my heart. I cried so much. I keep telling myself it is not over tho and we will be together again soon. The most important thing is I have so many wonderful memories from this trip and all the trips I have been on this year. I can not express how much I appreciate everyone and everything. To me making memories and spending time with the ones you care about is more important than anything else. Remember to take time for your loved ones and friends as well! I feel so refreshed and drained at the same time.
Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!
