I’ll preface this by saying that a proper documentation of my Christmas day – present photos and food photos – will be coming soon. Internet service is poor here in the country, so it takes about an hour to upload four pictures. I will get to that when I return to Melbourne.
It was lovely on Christmas day. It was spent at home with my parents and grandfather during the day, and then with friends at night. We had feasts for lunch and dinner. And I received (and gave) Amazing presents. Vouchers, money, Mimco purses and hair clips, books and pyjamas. I was seriously spoilt.
Christmas to me isn’t about religion or spending a heap on presents. It’s about showing those you care about how much you love and value them.
There were a few little Christmas miracles for me yesterday. They came in the form of text messages from friends.I received some beautiful and unexpected messages that made me feel so loved. A friend who I used to see a lot of and now not so much told me how lucky he is to have me as a friend. I received an unexpected thanks for a present and letter I sent someone – he loved it (phew!)! Another friend told me I am her favourite person she’s met this year. And there were many other messages of love, encouragement and appreciation of friendships. It does not cost a lot to show people you care. I am truly blessed to have the friends that I do. Thank you. And wow 🙂
PS: I finally heard a funny joke from a Christmas cracker! I know. Another Christmas miracle!
