Finished... Sort of

So last night I finished my first overall edit of my recently finished book Home. I just thought you all would want to know this fact. Also, it is now available to read for people who would like to. I do ask you one thing, you let me now what needs to be fixed. Like I said, I just did my overall edit of big problems and spelling errors things like that. Next is content editing and I need help with this. If you read it, I need you to tell me what works and what doesn't. But, if you want to read it, please let me know. I would be happy to send it to you.

I love you all.

Remember who you are and what you stand for.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I started listening to my Christmas music this morning. Some people would tell me that it is too early for Christmas music. We haven’t even had thanksgiving yet. Here is what I have to say to those Bah Humbuggers. These are my six reasons I listen to Christmas music almost year round:

 1. Christmas is a time of Joy: There is no denying that it is a special time of the year. People are constantly looking for ways to make other people happy instead of themselves. They are looking outside themselves to others.
 2. Christmas fosters love: There is no other time in the year that people are encouraged to tell the people around them that they love them. During the rest of the year people are so caught up in their ordinary lives that they don’t think about anyone but themselves.
 3. Christmas is a time of Gathering: During the Christmas season I get to see family or friends who have moved away through the rest of the year. There is no happier time for me when I get to see the people that I love all gathered in one spot.

 4. Christmas changes the world: There is no other time during the year that we are as close to world peace as we are at Christmas.
 5. Christmas is cuddle time: It doesn’t matter if you have someone special in your life or not, but the cold weather pushes people back into their houses together. People are forced together and because of that you spend more time with the people that you love and that may include cuddling, or maybe just watching Christmas movies and drinking hot chocolate. The snow gives me an excuse to stay home and spend time with the people that I love.

 6. Christ: I don’t usually post religious things because I know it makes some of my friends uncomfortable and they don’t want to be reading it, but I love Christmas because it is a time that I get to slow down and think about Christ and all that he has done for me. Now I’m not an idiot and I know that He wasn’t born during December and that we should actually celebrate it in April, closer to his actual birthday, but I am just grateful for a time to actually take time to think about Him.

 I am tired of people telling me that I can’t listen to Christmas music too early because it burns them out. What do you get burned out on? Love? World Peace? Cuddling? Spending time with friends? Christmas is a wonderful time of the year.. Also if you get burnt out because of the commercial side of things, try something different, like hand making gifts, or donating money to something else so that you don’t have to worry about it. There is nothing like the Christmas Spirit, and people who get burnt out are Bah Humbuggers because every day should be treated like Christmas and we should never get burned out on the Christmas Spirit.

  I love you all. I’m going to try and write more because I miss it quite a bit. I love you. I hope that you have a good Holiday Season and don’t forget that this feeling you feel during the holidays is one that you can feel throughout the entire year. Remember who you are and what you stand for.
