Where’s The Spirit?

Today is Christmas eve, but I don’t feel like it is. This is probably one of the worst feelings I’ve ever felt in my life. The feeling that it’s supposed to be the happiest time of the year. It’s supposed to feel that way. But being here in this part of the world.. It doesn’t work for me. I am terribly missing home. I am wishing now that my parents and I would be home this season. That I’d be with Laviel. This place is making me bitter and cranky. Or maybe I’m just PMS-ing?

I miss Christmas shopping. I miss the rush of people. I miss the crowd. I miss the gift giving. I miss enjoying the season!

But I’m still thankful and I am blessed. I have wonderful friends, a loving family, I’ve gained new family from the Dela Cruz’s, I’m married to my adoring husband, my colleagues are great people, and I have a great supervisor (who just told me a while ago that I could take the half day off today and whole day tomorrow!). I was actually waiting for Santa to come tonight or tomorrow but even if he doesn’t, I won’t mind. Despite being in the Middle East where Christmas doesn’t come as part of their culture, the people around me exudes the spirit of Christmas.

On behalf of my family, I’d like to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas! Cheers!
