Merry Christmas! War is Over (if you want it)!

As I'm spending my first Christmas with my boyfriend in Los Angeles, surrounded by my loud and obnoxious yet wonderful Filipino family, I wanted to share some sentiments from John Lennon and Yoko Ono


I love giving gifts.  Even when my mom would ask, "Why are you giving gifts to those people when they're not giving you anything?"  I gave anyway.

Though I try to be very conscious of the variety of holidays and I'm not at all religious, I credit my family's celebration of Christmas for this need to give to people.  Somehow, this feeling of giving expanded to my becoming a social worker.  I love the whole notion of empowerment and showing people how they can have some control over their own situations.

So, interwebs, this post is a gift to you.  A wish that you have a happy holiday and a reminder that even the most unattainable things are within reach (if you want it).

Happy Holidays!

p.s. Yoko is looking for more languages!  So click on the link at the beginning of the post to see if a language you're familiar with is missing!


  1. Thank you for the holiday wishes, sweetie.

    Glad you got to make it back home with the loud, obnoxious fam :D

  2. Thanks! I hope yours was a wonderful holiday as well!!


Well, hello there! What's on your mind?
