Raoul’s Two Cents: December 23, 2022

Have Yourself a Meaningful Christmas

Christmas is upon us. If you’re traveling and reading this while waiting for your next stop, safe travels to you. If you’re at your designated home for the holidays, sipping your peppermint flavored hot cocoa, watch those calories. If you’re sick with a virus, I pray it isn’t too bad. If you’re relaxing by chestnuts roasting on an open fire, enjoy your snuggle. If you’re sad and alone … if you’re missing somebody special, write me an email and share your thoughts … I’m interested. Whatever you’re doing, may you bask in the spirit of Christmas and the love of our Holy God.

TGIF people! Happy Chanuka, Feliz Navidad, Maligayang Pasko, Shèngdàn jié kuàilè (圣诞节快乐), eid milad majid (عِيد مِيلَاد مَجِيد),  Śubha baṛadina (শুভ বড়দিন), schastlivogo Rozhdestva (счастливого Рождества), Merry Christmas!

    Hi: Did I actually see the names of two Christmas songs in your message?

    2022 has been a doozy for most of us in one way or another. It’s the time when we all take inventory of the people we may have lost during the year and the challenges that we all faced. Faced with the help of the people around us that we love and are loved by.
    Please know that you are in that category of people I love that love me back. It is amazing to me how many people I love. Between my family and and friends, it’s my greatest blessing.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Heather

    Good Morning Raoul, TGIF Lol; was she trying to say I’ll be home for Christmas. I’m staying in my moms apartment for Christmas, My moms wants me to go with her to my youngest brothers house for Christmas but I told her I’ll pass . I don’t even know why they invite her and also debating her in court for my pops will money . ( I don’t understand) anyway Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you and the family my brother . It’s funny how every holiday since this stupid virus started, I get the worst stomach problems without changing my healthy diet and food intake. Shenanigans lol .

    Merry Christmas Raoul, I have been receiving your messages for approximately 2+ years. Sadly I have never stopped to say thank you for all your kindness and all the giggles.
