It doesn't feel like Christmas. We've got a beautiful tree and several presents, but it just doesn't seem like Christmas is actually here. I don't know why. I guess the magic of Christmas dissipates as we age. Bah humbug!
BB and I vacationed in Hawai'i recently. We spent quality time with my family and friends. We also had a commitment ceremony. A very intimate and private ceremony. It was beautiful. I cried. BB almost cried, but held back the tears as she wiped mine away. We kissed and proclaimed our love and devotion for eachother before countless witnesses, all strangers of course. But together as one, BB and I faced the world. That day will live in my heart forever.
So I take back that 'bah humbug' attitude in my earlier paragraph. Christmas is here, and I'm going to enjoy the holiday season. I hope you do too.
Mele Kalikimaka and Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!
