Since last week, I have been working as a Physician’s Lounge Attendant in my department where I work. That’s right y’all, I’m doing something different again. I’m responsible for stocking four doctors’ lounges during my daily shift. Previously, I was working distribution, but then I was tasked with stocking our main doctor’s lounge on the first floor. Tackling both wasn’t easy. I felt like one thing was pulling me from the other. Though I’m back to working five days a week, I’m fine with working from 7 am to 3 pm. Things seem to be going just fine at work, and I’m praying to continues to stay that way. If I ever feel uneasy I’m just going to keep doing what I’ve been doing- talk about it with God and go about my task until my work is done.
Saturday evening, my friend David Sael and I performed at Oak Grove Seventh-Day Adventist Church for their Christmas program. Of course I consider it ministering rather than performing. Our song choice was a medley of Angels We Have Heard on High and Little Drummer Boy. For some reason my knees were like gelatin(major pain in the butt to clean off floors), but apparently the audience couldn’t tell how nervous I was, because they seemed to love us.
Both David and myself also participate in our church choir, whom we also performed with that very night. Sometimes it can be frustrating struggling to learn parts, but when everything comes together it makes it all worthwhile.
Sunday, our church held our traditional Christmas social which we do every year. We treated ourselves to tasty hand foods; shared hilarious stories; played games; won prizes; and belted out high notes on a karaoke machine. The highlight of the social for me was when we all did gift exchange. This wasn’t your usual one though. We all sat in a circle in chairs with a gift in our hands. The host, my mother, read a Christmas story which had the words “left” and “right” written numerous times throughout. When you hear either word you pass the gift to the person on either direction which was called out. It can get a little challenging because those two words can be said so close together. Best to keep both ears open and gifts gripped tightly. One wrapped gift slipping out of my hands like butter as I tried desperately to pass it to the next person. By the end of the game I ended up with a box of chocolates, but I kindly exchanged gifts with another person who received what they had bought. I accepted a dapper looking Christmas mug.
Has anyone finished all their Christmas shopping? Last night after one last purchase on Amazon.com, I’ve officially finished mine. Christmas is the one time of year when I’m not too worried about overspending. I will admit however that my eyes nearly popped outta my head when I saw the most expensive gift on my nephew Jalen’s Christmas list. Of course I’m more than happy to go all out for those I care about, especially if they’re family. Speaking of family, this Christmas season in particular is reminding me of how we should be there for our blood. In the rough times, reach out to hem because you may not know what they’re going through inside.
Let’s see what’s left to do before I call it quits for tonight.
- Eat dinner.
- Wrap Christmas gifts.
- Read blog posts.
- Do Sabbath school lesson.
- Read a chapter of any book.
- Not get distracted with social media(minus WordPress) while doing these tasks.
How is everyone else doing? 😊😊😊
