All I Want for Christmas.........
Nov 29th, 2004 at 12:37am
 
Now that my kids are grown, my life has really taken on a new dimension around this time of year.  I have been slowly trying to move my family away from the "traditional" self-indulgences of Christmas and focus more on what I perceive to be the true meaning-which is giving rather than receiving.

I just found out that my childhood  piano teacher has cancer... Sad  She's 93 years old, and still as sharp as ever, so this really saddens me!

Christmas has been so commercial lately-- I noticed that they had the Christmas decorations up the day after HALLOWEEN!!!

For Christmas, I just hope to be able to spend some time with my family and friends whom I haven't seen, and also hope that others around me are blessed with good health.... I am continuing my training for the Breast Cancer walk-- found out one of my parents' friends who came to their 40th wedding anniverary party also has Breast Cancer...

So, this year, my hubby & I are probably going "low-key" for our Christmas presents-- no lavish gifts, just will enjoy quality time with the people we love... Smiley

Seven and a half years ago I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erthymatosis (LUPUS).  I was told that I was dying.  I quit my profession which I loved very, very dearly of being a stage manager, road manager and studio producer, video director in the Latin and Jazz music industry, had an article about me and the band I was managing on Entertainment Tonight and CEO of a production company.  I had broken all barriers in a male-oriented Latin industry.  I had made something of myself.  Yet, I was not angry at my life's detour.  I know that nothing happens by coincidence.  Through the hair loss and the fluid retention and all the surgeries, I grinned and bore the pain of the chemo-therapy.  I made up my mind that I was too stubborn to give up.  There is a phrase in Spanish, "Yerba mala, nunca muere", which means "Bad weeds never die."  I chose life.  Today, I am in remission and loving life.  I have a crazy little mail-order home delivery cookie company that keeps me happy.  I have a loving family.  All I want for Christmas is for positive things for everyone, and of course, to find Wally Palmar under my tree, or in my stocking..or just wearing my stocking..or just wearing a bow..heeheehee  Kiss  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Prosperous "Romantic" New Year for all, from littleone!

I am glad to hear that you "beat" the disease through your own strong will and optimistic attitude... May you make many thousands of cookies! Smiley
