I know this was definitely a Christmas I will never forget...
A few posts ago, I lost my first rabbit after finding out his back was broken and had to be put down. A lot of people helped me and supported me in my time of need. So while it was taking a long time to get back on my feet, as it always does when it comes to events like this (not even after how many times I've been through it >.< ). I didn't think I was going to have that great of a Christmas. No one was really coming to our family dinner and I only planned on giving presents, I was not really caring about getting any back. I was the same way even at work. Terrible I know T^T
And let's not forget to mention that everyone kept going out without me. So I was stuck in the house most of the time. I was so upset and annoyed that things were going on without me and I just didn't want to deal with it. Till I found out why...
As it turns out, people noticed my sadness a lot more than I knew. And so, my family began to form a plan behind my back that proved to give me the best Christmas ever. This morning I woke up at 7.30 am, dragged to the kitchen and was presented with a rather large square-shaped thing on the table. I was weird-ed out at first. I lifted up the cover, in case it was a practical joke...and lo and behold....two tiny baby bunnies were in the cage. A small dark gray one and a slightly bigger white one. Both of the Dwarf breed. I broke into tears and hugged my family. They were all in on it and definitely surprised me. It really was the best Christmas ever
We have to wait till we take them to the vet to see what they are (as you can't tell the gender of baby bunnies until they hit puberty) before we can name them. =)
I also got a BabyCakes Cupcake maker which allowed me to make these beauties
My grandfather also gave me my most favorite brand of perfume, Estee Lauder - Pleasures. And to top it all off, I was also given by my mother and sister a very funny pink shirt of two pandas. It reads "If you're happy and you know it - slap your friend" xD I love it all!
Today, Christmas, makes me think of the past years with my family. There are times when everyone is content and there are times where you just can't stand to be near your family. But they are your family no matter what. They annoy you or you annoy them to the point where you just want to leave. But it's times like these that make you greatly appreciate them, quirks and all. My family inspires me that no matter what, things happen for a reason and that there is always a silver lining, even in the darkest of times. Because if you have that love and support, not a single obstacle can stand in your way.
So I would like to thank my family, friends, loved ones and of course, my boyfriend for always being there for me. For being my inspiration. For being my reason to keep going. I love you all. And a special thank you to my dear readers and friends I met through blogging. I came to learn a great deal of new things I never knew before and heard such wonderful and inspirational words from many of you.
Thank you all for being my inspiration. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! Much love, peace and good luck with tons of best wishes! =)
