Christmas Day

It's two in the morning, just got in from Midnight Mass. I had to play the keyboard for the Mass. It was okay. Crazy woman conducting and I didn't read her signals so I just did what I usually do. But it was okay! I played O Holy Night for our young soloist and that was a buzz. The Samoan Community sang brilliantly, really stirring stuff. I loved it even though I hadn't wanted to go to that Mass at all!

BECKY< HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS CHRISTMAS CHAOS

And MERRY CHRISTMAS friends out there. Find someone you like and tell them that you like them today. Have something nice to eat. Give some consideration to those in need. After our nativity practice this afternoon, one of the mothers gave me a whole ham to give to someone in the parish who was needy. She had one spare for some reason, a raffle or something. Amazing, huh. I knew one particular family but I thought that they had moved house. I made a phone call from my mobile to someone who knew where they were. She didn't know the street number but described the house and we set out to find it! Christy and I trekked up a steep path to dilapidated house and a family of six children. You could tell from the door that they had nothing, so I hope they like ham! It felt right, to pass on something good to someone in need at Christmas time.

So that's it for now. From tomorrow night onwards, my holiday will really start to happen.
Looking forward to it... now I will rush off to bed...

Have a wonderful Christmas.

You do so much for your family, your school, the church and the community - I hope you find some time in the day to rest and reflect on all that you have achieved during the year.

OMG MOTHY!! I opened your parcel this morning! It came so early in December, we tucked it away by the front door, and it was still there until today when I said, What's this box doing here and then OMGOMGOMG it's from MOTH! So we opened it and we thank you so much for the beautiful Christmas decorations and the little delightful notebooks. You are such a gem! Xoxox! Wow! I love the patterns on the notepads, they are so vibrant. *hugs Moth* many times

It was just so kind of you to think of us, and ahead of time. See my next post, not many people actually DID think of us LOL!

Thank you again. It was a lovely surprise! xoxo

Thanks. I hope you had a good Christmas. I see you are not at home any more. I hope that works out well for you. I guess it's cold. It's warm here, of course ;-)

Thank you so much. I can't understand why LJ notifications are not coming up on my email, I didn't even know anyone had commented!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, dear Phil. I do hope it has been a good one for you xxx
