Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.
My mom works for a home health agency (schedules home visits, etc). She told me this evening that one of her nurses came in to the office and was talking about his patient. He said, "I think she's crazy because she was listening to Christmas music! She said it raises her spirits and makes her feel better (AMEN!)." I told mom that she should have told him that her daughter (me) listens to it this early too and she's not crazy. She didn't say anything. I said, "You didn't tell him that I do it too, did you? You didn't want him to think I was crazy!" She nodded, laughing.
MY MOM THINKS I'M CRAZY! Not really, but she does not understand why I get in to it so early. I guess some people just don't and I respect that, but calling those of us who do "crazy" is a little harsh!
On another note, I think it's great that an elderly person can have their spirits lifted and feel better just from listening to Christmas music.
Christmas music is very inspirational, that's why I love to listen My mom is actually not a very big Christmas person, but she has gotten to like it a little more over the years...more so than when I was younger. One year she didn't have a tree so the kids and I went to buy her a small tree and ornaments, and also included some of the kids ornaments. We showed up at her door with a tree delivery and the kids and I helped her decorate ..she has never forgotten that! I think that may have been the year it got turned around for her.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year its makes everyone feel happy and better so why not enjoy the music and DVDs etc all year around... Keep the spirits up and keep people happy!! =D wooooooo XX
GOD BLESS HER.... May she live a long and cheerful life with lots of xmas music and xmas cheer! =D she sounds BRILLIANT!!!
