Hi everyone! I hope your week was great! I’m sorry I couldn’t update the blog this past week, a lot was going on. I’m looking for another job, I went to the doctor, I’m preparing to move, etc. If you’re religious, please pray for me! If you aren’t, please send good vibes my way. I need to find a new job and everything needs to continue going well at the doctor. I’ll have lots more time this week to blog. I can’t believe Christmas is only 22 days away! I’m not sure where exactly this year went! I haven’t even started shopping yet! Are you ready for Christmas?
Advent 2017 (the Christmas calendar) started today and ends on Christmas Eve. I attended mass on Saturday evening. The father had had an excellent message. He said not to focus on shopping as much this year. He also said we should focus our energy on being happy and helping others. I think this should apply all year long. Even though things aren’t going as well as I’d like them to, I know there are many others are who are going through much harder things. The father also said we need to keep going on with life no matter how hard things are.
Something that really made me happy and proud of my son is him wanting to give away several of his toys to less fortunate kids at church. Some of the toys he picked out are new with tags. His catechism teacher asked that they bring four gifts for the elderly and children. He wanted to give away at least 15, if not more. We also plan on buying some items for the elderly. My son never wanted to part with any of his toys until today. This was the highlight of my day. How was your week? Take care everyone and I’ll be back with a Romantic Tuesday post in the next couple of days. Stay tuned for a few Christmas posts.
