This Christmas

And this Christmas will be a very special Christmas for meeeeee (queues the horns)  🎺🎷🎺🎷

Christmas was good to me this year! Although, I didn’t get to spend time with my parents for Christmas or all of my siblings; I had a wonderful time with my brother and his family. My little twin nephews were the highlight of my week. They had me googling every Christmas event available in the metroplex just to make them happy. It warmed my heart every place we went when they told me how great of a time they were having. First stop was Christmas town in Grapevine. The twins loved seeing the decorations and some of their favorite characters in front of some of the shops. But seeing Charlie Brown Christmas decorations had to be their favorite. Thanks to my dad, they are convinced that Charlie Brown Christmas is the best Christmas cartoon but I argued that it was because they hadn’t saw the Grinch!

We visited a very cool neighborhood where all of the houses were extravagantly decorated with themes that had my nephews jumping in excitement. We visited a couple of malls so that my nephews could see the huge Christmas trees and compare which one was better. (Their idea not mine lol) We fed ducks while singing Christmas songs and watched Christmas films every night. I could never get tired of watching movies and cuddling with my stinky boys.

Someone may be reading this thinking this is a pretty pointless Christmas post because everyone celebrates Christmas. But this has been the first time I’ve been in the Christmas spirit in years. The last couple of years have been a bit rough for me. So, I made it my duty to enjoy the holidays and embrace the cheerful memories. Memories of my family being altogether in one home. It’s been a couple years now since we have had the chance to really be together and celebrate. I was so discouraged about holidays that I hadn’t been in the mood. This year my goal was to find peace with myself and to find my happiness. I decided to no longer dwell on things that were out of my control and work on the things that I can control. I’m finding peace and I’m happy. As my sister Shatarra Sade says, you have to protect your peace and your happiness. & I’m protecting mine at all cost. I hope you guys spent time with your loved ones and had a wonderful holiday. Stay blessed and not stressed Queen!

Love Queen Sized Jaz
