I went to Powell's last night for some last min Christmas shopping. I always feel bad going shopping on Christmas eve cause I know that person that is ringing me up does not want to be there and honestly id rather them not be there so they can be with loved ones. But sadly I would still go shopping if it wasn't closed. So thank you customer service workers even though you hate people like me you helped someone get a gift. My thoughts of humanity going down the drain was uplifted when i gave the old vet that stands outside of powells trying to sell newspapers to get a buck . I had walk by him twice and said no each time. I didn't want to go through Christmas eve or Christmas day without doing something selfless. Christmas eve and day is when everyone is expecting more out of people because its a time of joy and peace and good will towards men. As I came out of Powells with my bad full of books. I pulled out a five dollar bill and told the old man I didn't want a newspaper and that he should keep it but wanted to say merry Christmas and to take care of him self. I put the money in his hand and gave him a hug and he hugged back and gave me the most thankful look on his face that I have never seen before he then told me also to have a merry Christmas and happy new year and as I walked a way with the warmest feeling flowing through my body i looked back and saw that I started a chain reaction with the good deed i did. I felt even more happy and once i got in my car i started crying. It was the best I have ever felt in years . He deserves more than standing on the corner selling news paper. I wondered where is his family what happened to this poor old man. It made having the life that i have and the will and feeling of wanting to help worth all the heartache and stress in world for that just one moment.
Christmas was what I expected . Jason went home to sped some time with the folks as well did Walker. Maria went to her brothers on Christmas eve and Patrick was nice enough to have me over with his family to have Christmas eve dinner. Sally's cooking is always delicious, we had a repeat of thanksgiving dinner. Anyway things have been good so far . Same old same old. 3 more months till we move again. Very cold today, still waiting to see some snow :)
Well it has been a day I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Lets now get ready for the New year!
