Today was Christmas, and while my mother is on her deathbed, I still managed to find happiness. I found happiness in being with my family. I found joy watching my younger siblings open up their Christmas day gifts. My heart warmed as my step-dad opened his presents, gifts which he didn’t know my brother, sister and I got for him. Today was about spending time with my family, and it w with them that I was happy. People came and visited us today, and the love from family and friends sustains us. I don’t need god to be happy, I do just fine with what I have here and now.
