It’s So Nice To Be HappyJanuary 3, 2010
I have learned a very important thing over the holidays. I’ve been sick for almost a week now, but I am still as positive and energetic as I can be. I spent New Year’s Eve shivering with cold while the rest of my friends and family sang their hearts out to their favorite songs (we had videoke for the entire neighborhood). Videoke is our version of the popular Karaoke wherein you choose a song and you sing it to the best that you can.
Even as I felt my body start to give in to sickness, I still tried to celebrate the coming of 2010 with my friends and family. I just had to sleep earlier than them because any later, I would have been too sick to even write this blog today. The lesson that I learned? Well, it’s the fact that even when we have so much fun being with our friends, partying, celebrating, or doing stuff we like, nothing can still beat the happiness that our family can bring. It’s just so different when we’re with our family.
I am so fortunate that I got to celebrate Christmas and New Year with the most important people in my life. I know that not everybody celebrated the holidays with joy. But I can only hope that my fellowmen who feel so sad and desperate will one day find it in their hearts to be happy again. I hope that they will find peace and that they will never turn away from God.
