It’s that time of the year…. The shops are crowded…. There is a sense of festive cheer everywhere …. The neighborhood homes are decked with twinkling little lights…. Dressed up fake Santas seem to be everywhere…. The letter to Santa is neatly written and postmarked to the North Pole…. It’s that time of the year when the child in you wants to believe in magic and Santa Claus…. It’s that time when you don’t need a reason to be happy !! Yes its that time of the year when even after being diagnosed with a viral pneumonia and a terrible ear infection, all I want to do is help my two loves put up Christmas decorations and be merry. Instead here I’am, cooped up in bed surrounded by meds with a throbbing ear and feeling miserable.
