Date line 24th December,Christmas eve............
Attended a Christmas do held in my youngest sister's house, two things happened that left me in a way sad. This year i brought my newly adopted god son(he is from a divorced family, father left when he was only 3,both my lovely wife and myself are fond of him,he is 15 years old).
When he was there, i could sense that he was feeling envious and lost at the same time, because my nephews and their friends(all from so called rich family) have all the luxuries things that he could only drool over....(story to be continued).In his eyes, i could feel that he felt unfairness but thank god, he is a child of god.
Another event that made me sad,when i could not see my eldest sister in the party,as my mom was not so fond of seeing her and her boyfriend there so she was not invited. This makes me wonder this question.
Would you sever your tie with your son or daughter just because she/he is dating or marrying someone who is not pleasing in your eyes?
Date line 25th December Christmas day.......
The happiest Christmas celebration i have ever had, simply because i attended a Christmas party cum a 25th year reunion dinner with my old school mates, read here for detail christmas celebration
Date line 26th December ...........Boxing day
I had a heated argument with my mother over breadfast when i told her that she should bury the hactchet against my eldest sister,despite the fact that she is not fond of her new boyfriend. I remembered asking my mother how would she feel if my eldest sister were to die on that Christmas day, would she still be hating her?
I told her that she should not practise double standard, when there is another family member whose character was less savory, (will divulge further) . As a matriach in the family, she should do to bring the family closer instead of ripping me apart. I am sad that this is happening, seriously.
Took my god son together with my family for a swim, and after which i took them to TGIFriday for dinner, and when i asked my newly adopted god son has he ever savoured steak before, he told me he had never, (will talk about my newly adopted godson in time to come)
My newly adopted godson has shown me the meaning of appreciation and how the act of appreciating someone can make the magi.
The past three days,i know i had hurt someone (my mother for an instance) but i just could not keep quiet if i felt that i needed to speak up,where no one else dares to.
P/S : Everyday i learn a little...............
