24 years of celebrating Christmas and as years passes by it’s getting a little different. It’s not how it used to be though but I know I still have the essentials. I still have my mom and my uncle despite our generation gap, we were still able to meet halfway. Despite my cheery demeanor, I too have problems to deal with but I guess life would be meaningless without challenges.
Too much of dramas though… it’s Christmas eve and it’s the best time to reflect.
My Christmas Eve Prayer
My Lord, I thank you for your never ending love and for not giving up on me by showing me everyday miracles that I should be thankful of.
Thank you for the gift of life and for the lives of the people I value the most.
Thank you for my job that I mostly hate and love all at the same time because it pays our bills and coffee.
Thank you for my friends who kept my secrets and helped me cope up with all of my dilemmas and frustrations that life has to offer.
Thank you for that special person who made this year a little more awesome and for the never ending good times whenever we’re together.
Thank you for my mom… thanks to all of her sacrifices, I’m where I am right now and my desire for growth will always be dedicated to her. It’s not easy to raise someone as difficult as I am, contrary to popular belief.
I’m not easy to deal with especially during my late teenage years.
Thank you for my ever patient uncle who takes good care of my mom whenever I’m out to work, to study or to just sit around doing nothing in a café.
Thank you for the strangers I meet everyday, for the people I’ve smiled, for acquaintances, for the annoying people and for all those random circumstances that have happened.
Thank you Lord for guiding my decisions and for the courage to face its consequences.
Thank you for reminding me that I’m not perfect, that I’m vulnerable, that I’m a sinner because I get to know what humility means and that I don’t always get what I want no matter how I think I deserved it more than anybody else.
I’m sorry for all the sins I’ve committed, for being judgmental and for questioning your will sometimes.
I love you My Lord and thank you so much.
Happy holidays from our home to yours. Smile and be thankful. It’s Christmas! 🙂
