Merry Christmas 2017!

Hey you all! This is Joshie writing here, there is nothing more than me wanting to tell you a very Merry Christmas and so Merry Christmas to you all! ‘Tis the season that every one of us cherish with our family and friends which is the most important thing about Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! Christmas isn’t the only thing that we celebrate with our family and friends, we also celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ! Nothing is more fun than the Christmas tradition that we carry through many generations of ours, opening Christmas presents and have vast amounts of foods for us to pick to put on our plates until our stomach cannot take them anymore! I can remember how excited I would get when the Christmas day arrives at age of a child, looking forward to celebrating Christmas with the family and open the presents besides the Christmas tree that we decorated while being surrounded my family. It was one of these moments that I treasure more than ever, as every Christmas I would visit my grandmother’s house on my mother’s side and seeing the grounds that was nothing but tons of snow. Spending several hours from early afternoon until it was dark out, spending my time with my grandparents, my mother, my aunt and my uncles with my grandmother’s poodle’s dog named Midnight. First thing we would start the day with a chat, after that we would fill our plates with foods which usually were Turkey and the other Thanksgiving foods but that time with some eggnog! After eating, some of us would sit back watching some television while having a chat with others, some of us would be passed out (I was among one of some who usually passed out) and wait for our stomach to settled down from being so full due to eating so much of foods on Christmas day then we would start unwrapping the presents that we gifted each other. After unwrapping the presents, we had so much joy and happiness as the sunset approaching me and my mother would depart ourselves from my grandmother’s home to our home. When we arrived at home that night, our friends would either visit, phone us and chat with me through online when we had a dial-up internet with a very old windows 98 computer.

Happy Mother’s Day 2017

I would like to personally wish the most important person on this earth, my mother a very happy mother’s day and that I am very thankful for everything she has done for me past these thirty years since she has become a mother to an only child which is myself – a child that thinks the world of her and looks up to her since this child opened his eyes for the first time after birth.

My mom has never stops her persistence in taking care of me for over thirty years and two months to make sure that I have everything that I need especially the essentials. Such as the roof over me, air conditioning and heating to keep myself cool or warm during both summer and winter; clothes on my back and foods on the table for me to eat everyday. Taking me to my doctor appointments to make sure that I am taken care of, this includes having to take me to Cincinnati to a children hospital every 2-3 years until I become a teenager, never leaving the hospital every time that I had to be admitted such as when I had undergone one of the most major surgery I have had ever went through, my back from my neck to my tailbone and when I broke my femur in half in my right leg my mother drove me to the hospital herself because she wouldn’t want to waste another minute for the ambulance. I have never truly see any mothers that takes as this tremendous care and responsibility without any hesitation for a child as my mother do for me.

Happy Birthday Mom

This is just a personal quick post, as I would like to publicly wish my mother a happy birthday so I wish you a very happy birthday mom and I hope that you enjoy a new chapter in your life journey as every age turns are a new chapter. You are a mother that I am very lucky to have, not some other mothers and without you I wouldn’t be here. You are the most important person in my life, more than anything and anybody in the world. You are amazing, simply the best mother and nothing or nobody can ever take that away from you. You are my life, you are my soul and you are my everything. You truly deserve everything and more than anything that anybody asks for. Every time I am down you are always there to cheers me on, every time I am worried about something you are always there to assure me that there is nothing to be worried about and when I am hurt you always find a way to take the pain away. I know I may sound a bit corny but every word I have said I mean it, you have care for me more than anybody on this earth ever did for me and every hurdle I went through you were always by my side to pull me out when I hit a barrier. You are my everything, it is me, you and us the world mommy! I love you so very much, more than you can ever imagine and more than you ever will know. You are my hero, you are better than any superheroes out there that is in the comic books and your most strength is your love that you gave for your child which is me. You have given me love much more than I could ever ask from you, you have shown me you care for me more than I could ever ask of you and I am indeed a very lucky as a son to have you my mother.

Reflection of ’16 & Happy New Year ‘17

Hey guys and women! I would like to wish all of you a very happy new year 2017! I am sure that some of your nights are still going on as it is still early night at 2:20AM and I hope that those of you who party with alcohol to be careful with deciding about driving because I highly recommend that you call a taxi or uber to drive you home. Even though if you aren’t drinking it is still dangerous to be driving on the road especially tonight since it is the new year and I am certain that there is a lot of people whose driving drunk so keep your eyes out for them. Everyone is celebrating the New Year, as everybody have every right to celebrate the new year but I am somewhat not in mood for celebration because there are a few reasons which I will share a bit later below. I watched the New Year ball drops as we always watch the ball drops on New Year eve every year, we would celebrate every year until tonight we are starting to realize that it feels as if it is just another day even though we know that it is the New Year and now I don’t really see the point in celebrating for the New Year. I guess everyone have different opinions or thoughts about the New Year, I did as we used to celebrate the New Year traditionally with the family and now it is just both me and my mother as our family have been decreased so that’s one of many reasons that we rarely celebrate the holidays.

Happy Thanksgiving 2016!

I would like to say that I wish every single of you a very Happy Thanksgiving of the year 2016! Some of the people including myself who celebrate thanksgiving or some of the other holidays earlier or later and as for this year we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving a day earlier which that means today instead of celebrating for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Some people just have their preference for when to celebrate for what, such as Thanksgiving, Birthday or Christmas for certain reasons whether it be a conflicts with some people’s schedules, health or medical reasons and among others. We started celebrating either a day before or the day after for some holidays but we never will celebrate a day earlier or later for Christmas as we always have to celebrate on Christmas day, we have do so for several decades in all of our family generations and I don’t recall of ever celebrating Christmas a day earlier or a day after. Although I did used to celebrate Christmas a day before every year when I was young with my father and his side of the family but as for me and my mother’s side of the family it is always on the 25th of December every year no matter if we are to celebrate early in the morning or late at the night as long as we at least celebrated Christmas on its Christmas day. But as for Thanksgiving, we have celebrated on the day of Thanksgiving and a day before on some different years so pretty much each year takes their turn for us to celebrate on its day or a day earlier.

Happy New Year ’16, Resolution and Christmas lists.

So this is it, the turning page anew for everybody of us for the new year of 2016 and with the hope in us that the new year 2016 will be better than the last year that we were in. Did any of you had fun celebrating the new year at the midnight last night when the calendar officially turns to the year of 2016 with the ball dropping on live television? I as for one did with the only person which is my mother and that is all I need with me for when the chapter turned anew with some blank pages that is waiting to be written of what we will be doing on the year of 2016. I don’t know about some of you but I think that the year of 2015 which is now last year have went somewhat fast, as the clock hits midnight at 12 o’clock got me to realize that the time have really flew by and I barely could catch up with it but it is here so nothing I can do about it except to try to make the better out of the new year 2016 than I could in the year 2015. Last night when we were watching the live television waiting for the clock to hit midnight with the ball being dropped, we celebrated with some foods such as my mother’s delicious homemade pizza rolls, meatballs, mini wrapped up hotdogs, chips with dips, some shrimps and a couple of others with the drinks of our choice which mine were Monster Energy because it’s my drink on regularly basis and my mother’s were diet Pepsi which both of them were in the glasses.
