“Jesus is a cool name”

Hey, remember me? Poor neglected blog. I have many thoughts throughout the day of things to blog about. Off the top of my head…our Disney Vacation, Malia turning 4, Mom’s progress and Malia’s first dance recital. I usually decide to take a nap instead. So with that being said, I have a lot of catching up to do. For now, I’ll tell a brief story…

Malia has been opening Christmas cards with me. On one of the stamps there was Mary and baby Jesus. Here’s our conversation:

Malia: “Who is this?”
Me: “That’s Mary and baby Jesus.”
Malia: “I thought I recognized him.”
Long Pause
Malia: “Jesus is a cool name.”

I thought maybe there would be some questions of who Mary is, why Jesus is laying in hay. I wasn’t expecting what I heard…but she’s right, Jesus is a cool name. I just love the way she says things sometimes.

So, it’s only 3 days until Christmas. I’ll have to find my Christmas spirit. I guess I’ll take things as they come. I find when I try too much it causes stress and sometimes you can try too hard to make something special. I guess if your living in the moment, you won’t miss the special things that are just happening before you. What? Well, maybe Oogway from Kung Fu Panda can say it better: “You are too concerned with what was and what will be. There’s a saying: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.”

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas!
