Another Christmas in our life, my family is intact and we’re together. I am more than thankful because this year has been good for us. We probably have less worries than most Americans. Thank You, Lord! Another thing is that we are able to provide for our children not just their needs but also their wishes and wants especially for Christmas. We have more gifts for them this year than previous.
Though presents under the Christmas tree look great, nothing is more gorgeous than the family that opened them this morning. I saw the facial expressions, I captured them all while they had fun!
“No man is an island” as the saying goes. I believe this to be so true especially here in America where the world can be so cruel at times. I am more than thankful I met this three ladies at work shown in the picture below because, I can be myself and relate with them when it comes to Filipino foods, life’s frustrations and most of all, they are the ones I can vent out my disappointments with when it comes to work. They are there to listen and most of all laugh with.
At my job, there are only 4 of us. Two in the kitchen and two in the cafeteria. We are outnumbered by other races, most people working there are blacks. So, knowing I have 3 friends of my own race is pretty comforting, that I am not alone when the going gets tough for I know they will help me morally.
In this picture, we had lunch together and shared my monggo bean and rice one time. We all loved it because it was for a change from eating bland American hospital food. For us, Filipino foods are the best, don’t argue with that.
It’s this time of the year that people are so busy looking for gifts to give to their loved ones. Some haven’t even started shopping yet. Although deals flooding online and stores across the country, it seems so difficult buying for things for other people no matter how many sales and discounts are right in front of you if you don’t know what to get for them.
But for musicians in your family, finding great music deals won’t be too hard. They are everywhere and if you will ask as to what specific musical instrument they want, you can very well find a good deal on each.
We truly never know the value of money unless we work hard to make it. Although I am making a bit of $ online, it is way different when you go out there working for a company that requires your 8-hour energy to do the job and being constantly bossed at.
Anyway, I rewarded myself for working endlessly these past two months. I deserve it and it will serve as a remembrance working in a food service industry. I paid it in full and I am proud using this phone knowing that this is from the fruit of my hard labor, two weeks worth of my paycheck!
With this phone, I know that I appreciate/enjoy it and that I will take care of it to last for years. I know I can easily ask my husband to buy me this, but I wanted to prove to myself that when I like something big, I can buy it from my own sweat now that I have a job.
This is what I want for Christmas and the Victoria’s Secret XO perfume that I waited for so long to come down in price, got it for half off original price, so I am good not wishing for more other than for my family to be together and in good health always!
