Christmas Shoes

I'm wishing everyone a very merry Christmas. :-D Last night, we attended the Christmas Eve Mass at The Grand Palazzo's Christ the King Chapel. I love love love the choir. For the communion song, they did The Christmas Shoes. Truth be told, this is something I'm not really well-versed with. But while listening, and reading through the lyrics, I had a heartwarming feel. And felt a bit guilty. I'm actually a bit feeling a very bit guilty even a while back. I love shoes. I'm addicted to FitFlop™ even. Few weeks ago, FitFlop™ Philippines did a giveaway. I read several heartwarming entries about wanting to win a pair for a loved one. Oh my, I don't want to sound condescending, but after reading through those, and the recent disheartening events in our country, I felt an Ouch! My, my someone has been being too materialistic and superficial lately, it's not just the shoes per se, it's the bits and pieces of it... :-(

Okay, no sad thoughts for today. Moving ahead, here's a line from the The Christmas Shoes.
♬ I knew I caught a glimpse of heaven's love as he thanked me and ran out, I know that god has sent that little boy to remind me what Christmas is all about. ♬ 
My take, Christmas is all about... celebrating love in the family, sharing, about counting our blessings. Celebrate Christmas everyday. ;-D

Here's a video of Noelle Cassandra's rendition of The Christmas Shoes.


A novel, and tv movie of the same title were inspired because of the hit song. ;-D

I'm wishing everyone a very Happy and Blessed Christmas! Let everyday be Christmas time ...easier said than done, too idealistic even, but with a fervent heart, we can do this! :-D

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
