Merry Christmas Everyone. Heading further south for this joyous Christmas Day Friday to spend with my father.

I know Christmas can be overwhelming with or without Lupus. Emotions can run high, filled with joy and or gloom.

If you do feel blue...Remember Christmas is celebrating Jesus, Jesus' birthday. Rejoice in his day.

Enjoy all things big and small. The smell of pine, the jingling of the bells, Christmas Hymns, laughter of the neighborhood children, all colors especially the reds and greens. Leafless trees dormant in the cold and snow reminding of us of eternal life when they bud and bloom each spring. Life is all good, each day.

Hum it or sing with me a favorite of mine...

God rest you merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ, our Saviour,
Was born upon this day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray.

O tidings of comfort and joy,
comfort and joy;
O tidings of comfort and joy!

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace.
The holy tide of Christmas
All others doth efface.

O tidings of comfort and joy!
For Jesus Christ, our Saviour,
Was born on Christmas Day

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas..blessed we each are.

Off in my four wheeled sled...jingle, jingle..
See you when I get back...
Love,
Oluwa

:D So wonderful to see you kicking your heels up!

For all of us at this season - rejoice and be glad!

Whether you celebrate

Channakuh
Christmas
Kwanzaa
Solstice
Ramadaan

or any holiday I might have missed - I hope it is a wonderful time for you!

It can be hard - we set many expectations on ourselves. Take the time to sit back and just...look. Take in the season, take in the people around you. And be glad for this life.

For all of you getting ready to travel for the upcoming holiday, may you arrive safely at your destinations. There's been so much terrible weather! (My heart goes out to those who are still living without power in the cold and dark.)

Happiest of holidays....whatever you're celebrating, my friends!
