The expectations of the day are almost too much.
Yet there is a moment when it all clicks, you know.
"Happy New Year!!"
People actually mean it.
And then we get ready for the couple of days where we spread a little bit of cheer, hopefully, within our own families.
Yet Christmas seems to change through the years, doesn't it?
We all recall the excitement of being children and waiting on Santa.
Then there are the teen years where we feel a little guilty...about the presents we receive.
Then we are Santa!
Then we stop caring about presents at all and think of food and drink and a few days off!
I was a little down on Friday...
...out of nowhere, actually, but certainly because it was Dad's birthday.
The "down" moment was just a moment though.
I wouldn't let it take hold.
Because I started thinking about the true meaning of Christmas and I got a little assist from my lifelong buddy, Bruce.
Land of Hope & Dreams came on Sirius.
The Wrecking Ball version...
...with the heartbeat in the background all the way through the song.
And then the Bruce wail at the end:
"You Just Thank the Lord!"
Merry Christmas to All!
