Christmas Eve 2021
On October 19, my siblings texted that they have purchased their tickets to Los Angeles. Their families have finalized their plans of spending Christmas with our family! What a blessing!
Then my mind raced to December. I knew that with 14 guests, plus the five of us, it was going the be all pandemonium, sleepless nights, and craziness! I have to finalize food, accommodations, and activities. For a minute I thought I should leave it all to God. Then on second thought, I didn't think that was a good idea. I believe I had to plan things out, and pray for the best. If things don't work out as planned, then God was more than welcome to share his plans with us.
As we celebrate this Christmas Eve, I know that everything will be as I imagined - lots of craziness, messes, and above all, love. And that's what Christmas is really all about.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
