Today I'm thinking about the many, many blog posts out there in cyberspace about Christmas, so that made me think about NOT wanting to write about it, but instead because the Holidays are supposed to bring out the best in you, I started thinking about pretty pictures of things I don't like, and that's what today's post is about.
I don't like rats
(this one is adorable...)
I hate the taste of cherries
(but I find it could be a pretty sexy looking fruit)
(definitely not for me, I have enough with life as it is)
driving in the snow
(been there, done that, don't like it, scenery is nice,
but that is if you are at all able to relax and enjoy it!)
(not my thing, but this guys are doing a good job looking buff)
(like 'em but not in real life)
I don't like animal suffering
(this picture gives me hope that thanks to humans the Koala will get better)
I don't like anything slimy like a snail
(but specially I DON'T like it when blogger uploads your pictures the wrong way, LOL!!)
Even though I don't particularly find Christmas movies interesting, this year I decided that the right time for such kind of flicks is not other that the month of December, and that's exactly what I've tried doing this month.
So far here are the one's I've watched, one that was just OK:
One that just plain SUCKED!
One that I've always liked as a fun romantic comedy and now that I watched again, realized this could be consider a Christmas movie, so now I highly recommend it for any season:
A must see classic:
And last, but not least my favorite Christmas movie (for a few years now) and that I always love to watch on Christmas day is:
And those are my holiday movies of the year, if you are lacking Holiday spirit (like me) watching those and some eggnog might just do the trick, LOL.
Yesterday afternoon I read the sad news about the young actress Brittany Murphy passing of a cardiac arrest, not only she was beautiful, talented and young lady (she was my age, 32), but also a daughter, sister, wife and friend, to somebody that will miss her dearly.
Regardless of the reason why she passed away, my mother always says, "it only takes to be alive in order to die". No matter your age, gender, skin color, social status or anything else. We are put into this world to live life to the fullest and then to die, as dying is the ultimate answer to everything, the passing to a better place, a place where everything that you can't come to terms with in life, will bring that to your soul.
So while a young Hollywood actress full of hopes, dreams, projects, success and a whole life ahead, suddenly dies, on the other side, yesterday, I came to find out that my grandmother (which is around 91 yrs old and has been sick for a couple of years after having a stroke), is very delicate now and some of my family member have decided to put her in a hospital for somebody to take "better" care of her?
Why is it us humans are so attached to this life? (which in many cases, like my grandmother's state, don't think is really worth staying around for very long).... No matter how much we are attached to our life, we are all going to die and our best hope should be for a sudden natural death and not a tragic accident or a crime.
So while a young soul goes off, an old, wise and beautiful soul is still around, after having had a wonderful long life as a daughter, sister, mother, wife, friend and specially grandmother. On this Christmas time I reflect in both life's and pray for them and many more that need to find peace during life and when closer to God.
