Month: December 2018

December 25, 2018: Family Time/Reading Update

Today is very special, since Christmas is a holiday to spend valuable time with family. Life can be extremely hectic, yet for a couple days we can spend time with cousins and relatives, and share special moments together.

Along with the time spent with relatives, I also have time to plan my reading time. I’m nearly done with Nine Perfect Strangers, and it’s been quite an interesting story. I will have that review posted close to the end of the week. I’m looking forward to beginning my next story, which centers around Christmas (I know, after Christmas Day…my time management is out the window!). I’ll see where my mood takes me 😊

December 24, 2018: Special Times

Christmas Eve, a special day for many. Not only because it’s a holiday, but I actually have the day off due to the lack of children at the center. I definitely needed the extra time for myself to refuel mentally.

I even have some time to read my book today. I’m about 71% through with Nine Perfect Strangers. I’m going to give my review of the story this week.

Yesterday my friend from Puerto Rico called and mentioned that she received her save the date card for the wedding! I’m so relieved that I still had the right address for her. It’s going to be a wonderful event if she does indeed make it. It’s been 13 years since we’ve last seen each other.

December 22, 2018: Change

Life moves in such a fast pace, it’s easy to lose touch with people you were once in close contact with. The reasons could vary: crazy schedules, moving far from one another, or simply not maintaining connections as frequently. Then suddenly, they’re no longer in your life.

Today I just discovered that a good friend of my family passed away. This person was very close to my aunt, and I would always play with her children growing up. We had a great relationship with them. Life moved on and I lost touch with them, but my family still told me how they were doing. It was good that they still maintained contact with each other, even though it wasn’t as frequent as it used to be.

I hope that her family finds peace and comfort during this difficult time. Life can truly change in an instant.
