12.25.12: First American Christmas
I have been blessed with a lot of opportunities again lately. Life has unfolded answers that I have been seeking for the past few months and I am just too overwhelmed with how God has been showing me how amazing my life is – every single waking day. Excitement is overpowering my entire soul. All I know is, I have my fingers crossed and my prayers and hope are getting stronger each day. Let this be it – I tell myself.
Anyways, I do not want this to be another sappy post about me not having my family beside me during the holidays. I feel like, I should look forward to what’s ahead of me instead of looking back to my not-s-good days. So yeah, I am looking forward to this coming Christmas, cause by all means – I will do everything that I can to be with my family 🙂

I do not know if I have stressed this out enough, but yeah..Christmas 2012 was very different. 50% of what transpired was something that I have yearned for a long time.
