Christmas music Note-1885680_1920-pixabay.comThe day after Thanksgiving, I start singing Christmas songs. Sometimes my family sings with me and sometimes they leave the room screaming.

Music plays in the background while I decorate my house for the holidays. To further the festive mood, I also decorate my planner for the month of December and January during this time. Anyway, here’s the list of songs I play and sing to spread holiday cheer and bring in the new year.

  1.  The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole
  2.  It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Andy Williams 
  3. Let It Snow by Dean Martin 
  4. Let It Snow by Boyz II Men
  5. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Luther Vandross 
  6. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus by The Jackson 5
  7. It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas by Michael Buble
  8. Gee Whiz It’s Christmas by Carla Thomas

Christmas Comes Early

Week 22. The best gift I ever gave.

The best gift I ever gave was one my younger brother and I presented to our mom.

The company my younger brother works for had put their cleaned refurbished desktops up for sale. He let us know and my mom, older brother and I each purchased one. None of us had ever owned a computer except for my younger brother whose company had them for sale.  We had a limited knowledge of how they worked as we all used them in our jobs.clip-art-computers-779141

We were excited about bringing them home except for my mom who we had to drag into the 20th-century kicking and screaming. They intimidated her a little but eventually, she embraced using it and become very proficient. She even wrote a Sunday school summary for each week’s lesson and emailed them out to members of our church and her friends.


Fast forward a few years. The refurbished computers became obsolete so we bought new ones. Mom purchased a netbook. She loved it, but as time went on, problems occurred. Logging in was slow, the RAM and the operating system were not upgradeable. But she refused to buy another.  My youngest brother and I decided to take matters into our own hands. We took her to an office supply store so she could pick out a new computer for her birthday.
