Was Christmas here cuz it sure didnt feel like it

Well I awoke at 4 am and waited to get the time of Christmas day that I used to cherish over with as fast as possiable. Until a couple of years ago, I loved being woke up and rushed out to the tree to watch everyone rip open their presents. This is the first Christmas in my life that when everyone woke up, there we'r only 3 presents under the tree. A friend loaned me enough money to get everyone 1 item. So the three presents under the tree we'r from me, one for my mom, one for my son, and one for my sons g/f. So I sat there while each of them opened their gift,, they seemed happy at what I picked out so I was happy.I think my son expected the usual christmas with lots of presents, I think he thought I was just kidding when I had told him that if he didnt pay back the money he had stolen that it would be considered as that he had already had his presents but he handled it well. No fighting, or bitching so I was thankful for that. After they we'r done I went to eat at a friends,,came home and went to sleep and I didnt get up until today. I am glad its over. I know now how lucky I have had it in the past and I plan on making sure that at some point during the next year I take time to donate a couple of toys for the homeless or some canned goods because when you have nothing at christmas its a very empty feeling filled with a sadness that comes from knowing you cant see the happiness in the eyes of the people you love. Im not sure I said that right but you know what I mean. I think what made my christmas the best is making it threw the 7 hours I stayed up for with no fighting. So my thought for the day was be truely thankful for what you have because it can get alot worse. Hope everyone is well and happy. And Mel thank you for the loan so my tree wasent completely bare. Your a great friend!!

peace out

I know what you mean dear. Since my son died I havn't had to many good Christmas's. No one to open presents, or to even buy for. It's hard for me to get in the spirit anymore. Keep your chin up it will get better. Besides your to lovely of a lady to be sad.. Rick.
