Back to work already?
Today, while going about my business I came across some people who were already back at work after the holiday. I was a little surprised by some of what they told me.
The reason I was surprised was simply because I am the kind of person who genuinely loves having time with relatives and friends at the holiday. I’m sure I’m one of hundreds of millions of people who feel the same way. However, I am happy to report that some of the people who were already back at work felt pretty okay or even better about being there. It was just that I had expected that either they would feel as if they had to lie to me about it, or that most of the people who worked today would have been miserable about not having had more time to enjoy their relatives and friends.
Due to my personal preferences and stage in life and spiritual interest, I actually spent almost the entire day on Jesus. Again, I’m sure that my being actively oriented that way at the religious holiday commemorating Jesus’s birth is something that hundreds of millions of people around the world also did, but for me it was somewhat special because it was voluntary and I did it that much more than I have done most years so far in my life.
If you did to, I hope you felt wonderful about it.
This is just to wish you all well, and hope that you are either continuing to enjoy what Christmas does to your life and the lives of those you love, or that you are glad that the craziness has already passed you by.
