A Holiday Message from Swa-Rai

This morning, I must admit… I didn’t wake up in the best mood! You may not know this about me but I’m sort of a perfectionist, if things aren’t 100% right then I’m not happy! I didn’t even cook this Christmas! I laid in the bed until 1pm and just watched tv! I’ve been through so much in the last 5 6 years that sometimes I truly just get tired! Tired of all the trials and tribulations but then again that’s life! After lying around having my pity party, I got to thinking! Thinking about those who are less fortunate than I am, thinking about those who have lost family and children before the holidays! Then it made me realize that no matter what I’m going through it could always be worse. I’m alive, my boychild is happy and healthy!  I’m truly blessed, what more can a girl ask for!

So to all of you who are down right now or just not in the best spirit, I challenge you to think beyond yourself! Just hold on, trouble don’t last always!

And if that doesn’t work think of the true reason for the season…

From my family to yours…Merry Christmas!
