Where the Time Goes?

I was talking to my niece today, she is around 22 or so, and she has a little girl named Katrina (don't ask) that will be 1 on January 26th the same day that my brother (her father) will turn 44, go figure. As we talked about things and everything, I picture her in my mind as this mischievous baby that she was, I can pass that age, I cant' believe that my little baby niece has a baby, I can believe that she had grown.
Karina calls me quite often, which is a good thing since we were not that close when she was a teenager or even before that. There is a space of time that she is absent of my memories, she wasn't there at all, now she calls me and I go to visit her every now and then, she lives in PA very far from me, so we have to plan the visits, but I really enjoy talking to her.
I have 5 nieces Elena is 33 and have two boys one is 7 and the other is 5, Isabel is 27 she just got married in October 28th Steven and my mom went to Costa Rica for the wedding.
Katherine is 24, and is married to this guy who is in the Marines, he just came from Iraq but he is stationed in North Carolina, and Katherine is living in Costa Rica, no idea why. She has no kids yet. Karina who is 22. And Abby, Abigail, she is 8 months and is so funny and happy.
As I sit to contemplate the past I realized how much I had miss because I lived my own life, or maybe because I rushed to my own future; let us slow down in life; things will get to us on its due time. Meanwhile let us enjoy and live the today, so we can have less regrets tomorrow.
Enjoy Life.

Merry Christmas to all!

Merry Christmas, It's so nice to be able to say that without thinking I'm going to offend someone, I say it and the heck with the one who gets offended, WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?. . .
Yesterday my UPS guy came with some boxes I was waiting since Friday, he is so nice that I gave him a tip, he's been here so many times, that we miss him when he's not around. Anyway, I said to him Merry Christmas and he kind of look surprised, it took him back for a split second, maybe he was told at his job not to say it, maybe he was told to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas, maybe he's Jewish, anyway I said Merry Christmas and I said it first, after he put the boxes on my front room before he left I could read his mind (I'm getting good at it :D ) he could see the kind of trouble he could get just for saying it back, people are mean and could get offended for saying such words. (Again WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PEOPLE?) . . . But he saw my happiness, (I got my boxes on time) and he could hear the sincerity in my voice, that he said Merry Christmas back to me.

It was so nice the expression on his face like he was relief that he could say it, Like he was holding a pee for the whole day and finally he got to go; he left with a smile on his face, it could be the tip, or maybe the my words, whatever it was I had been saying merry Christmas to everybody I got in contact with, if I was more familiar with other less popular holidays I'm can guarantee that I would be saying have a happy _________ .

Let's spread the word with no cares in the word let us say Merry Christmas to all and to all shut the heck up.
Have a merry Christmas

you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it
