It’s christmas! Here in the Netherlands we celebrate this holiday on two day’s. Today was the first day. To me, christmas is a day of sharing love and happiness to those who are family to you. I enjoy those days that my family is reunited. Though, not every family member is always present. But that’s OK, they probably want to enjoy some quiet times too. Because it can be pretty loud with all of the kids!
As it was today. The kids were very enthusiastic. Some new family members decided to come over and that made me feel warm inside. This year, pretty much the whole family was at my mom’s place. It was lovely! Though, I am very tired thanks to the kids. Can’t wait to have a few of my own. Must be great!
This time it did feel weird. When me and my boyfriend arrived, there weren’t many people. I wanted to come early to help my mother out with some preparations. After that we started with the few gifts my sister and I bought for all of us. Mom didn’t have any money so she must have felt pretty bad about it… But we managed to cheer her up! Especially with the beautiful idea my sister had for her. A new picture instead of the picture she had with dad. She had tears of joy! That almost made me cry too…
The fact that dad wasn’t here with us didn’t bother me as much as I thought it would. Before we left our little apartment, I asked my dad through Facebook what his plans where. He told me he was going to a theme park, and the next day he would stay at his sister’s place… I felt good about it, knowing he wasn’t spending christmas alone, but I also felt anger… Jealousy. For he was with another woman. Another family.
Well, I won’t let this ruin my day! It was lovely! The food wasn’t that tasty though, but that doesn’t matter. It’s the thought that counts! Now I can relax with my love, Adolfo, and my dear little kitten Momo and have our own little christmas. Tomorrow we’re going to Adolfo’s mother and family. Should be fun!
Merry Christmas everyone!
