Hope Your Christmas Was a Great One



Spent the night at Mom's house, as is our tradition. Got to see Sister and Stepdad, along with Brother Johnnay. Watched half the Charger game, then left and went to the Porcelli's house, where we had pie, helped finish assembling the yearly Christmas Jigsaw puzzle and played Beatles Rockband. Rebecca was there, and the Rosa's stopped by. Came home, opened gifts with the kids, and now they are watching Sabrina (Bogart/Hepburn) while I'm in here, fighting off depression.

I just need to count my blessings and listen to that Amy Grant video clip a few more times, I'll be fine.

Hope you're all well.

Merry Christmas

Wonderful video, our Pastor used it in the Christmas Eve Service.

The other day when I was feeling particularly depressed, and after I poured all of my complaints/worries/apologies out to God, I forced myself to start listing and thanking Him for all that was good. I know, it sounds too simple to possibly be effective. But when I was finished I felt much lighter. :)

Praying for you, Dave, and please remember me in your prayers - to not fall victim to the post-Christmas blues.

Good for you for fighting! I tend to wallow....

It's so easy to get depressed around this time of year.... Why?

Paula: Sounds like we have the same approach. If your Christmas blues are anything like mine, I will pray for you indeed!

Ann: I enjoy a good wallow myself, make no mistake.

Shannon: Another year is gone, the big Christmas distraction is passed, time for a little self reflection. I get to see how far I am from who/what I want to be. Get a good, uncluttered view of things as they are, and it's depressing. I could go into uncomfortable detail, but I think I'll spare you that...

Enjoy your youth! And have a great New Year! :P

Remember Shannon, when Lloyd said that Christmas is the time for the most amount of suicides? We hope the cheer and good feelings will last and actually touch our hurts and meet our needs, and when it doesn't, it hurts infinitely times more. :(

Avari said...

Sou da na, that sounds about right. Looking at yourself and realizing how far you are from what you want to be....

Nope, I didn't hear Lloyd say that but it sounds true. That's sad. Makes you not want to get so hyped about Christmas.

It probably isn't wrong to get hyped about Christmas, but i guess the trick is not letting it consume us?? I don't know. I haven't figured it out yet either :P
