Merry Christmas To All Of Yous At Broowaha!

by 'Mean' Mike Duffau (writer), I'm the boss!, December 14, 2007

I wish yous all happiness and good health. I swear to God!

After cooling down a bit from my last article, and getting my senses back together and feeling a little serene. I thought I'd be a good boy and to show you that my hearts' in the right place, I'll fight any man in the house! I'm kiddin' ya! On the serious note... I don't know too much about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa or anything like that. I'm just going to give you all a solid MERRY CHRISTMAS! Weather you like it or not and spare the political correctness about it. I don't want to hear it!

I want to wish you the best that life can give. Happiness and Good Health!

You are all a pretty good group of people out there in the broo world, and I want to let yous all know it from the bottom of my heart. Yous didn't take any cheap shots at me and I appreciate it!

I also want to say...Tell your family that you love them, and often. (even though they may not be the greatest, look past it) Love yoursef!(somebody told me that. Actually several people did.) The hardest one to do is love your neighbors, co-workers, bosses, etc... They're not the easiest. Love is a strong word and even a little of it goes a long way. Christmas shouldn't be the only time of the year to be nice to someone. Treat those as you want to be treated. (not an easy task to do.) Everybody has heard that before, but how many of us practice it? (I don't! Not all the time.)
How many of you smile? That's an easy thing to do, but not all does it. A first good impression is a smile and I'm going to try to do it more often. How many of you out there look at somebody and just hate them from the start? I mean you just don't give them room to breathe. (I'm guilty of it. Little by little I strike up a good conversation with people I'm not fond of, I might learn something and so could you if you give people a chance to prove themselves.)
Do you pray? I mean having a good conversation with the man upstairs and telling him that you're grateful for what you have? Don't waste your time and his if you're going to wish for materialistic things. (I got to admit, I'm slipping in the prayer department.)
You know, it's been pretty cold outside lately. Have you helped out a homeless person? Yeah, you've seen them around and you ignored them maybe or brushed them off? Be a sport and give him/her a blanket or something to eat? (Helping a homeless person when I can is something I do often, for I have known what it's like to sleep out in the streets.) I have had some of the best talks of my life from chatting with a homeless, better than the average joe out there who thinks they have an answer to the solution but does nothing about it to make a difference. If I had the funds or the resource I would buy a street block and build as many houses as I can, and shelter them. I would also help them find employment so they can get their lives back on track. And most important get them the proper medical attention.

One of my best friend's son is only two years old and has leukemia, when most of us have our health. Do you ever think about stuff like that? The only thing I could do to show my support was ordering two shirts that he had made in his son's behalf for ten bucks a piece.
Along with sending a card to a love one like your family, give them a phone call and have a long talk and listen to them and hear the sound of their voice. Take that in for they will not be around forever. I think it's wise to make an impact for someone and have them look up to you as a positive influence. Even if it's one person!
What if you're alone and have nobody? It happens. Why don't you invite them over for dinner? Be a friend!
For the kids out there whose family cannot afford to buy gifts, I'd set up a toy drive and I'll pass out each and every one of those toys until each kid says "this is the best Christmas ever!" That would put a smile on my face.

I know I haven't been the best son, sibling, and a friend
to many and it's easy said than done, but I'm going to do my best. I think it's too late to win a championship belt for fighting in the ring, but I would rather have a championship belt for living life the best that I can. Lifes' champion!

If I can give all of yous broo folks out there something, it would be... My love and respect to everyone of yous!

MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Enjoy.

I'm finding how truly sad it is that there are people in this world who can't handle sincere generosity and are incapable of accepting gifts. They view the world thru jaded eyes and dark hearts wanting to deem anything that doesn't resemble their bleak existence as CRAZY. TO them I would like to the give them the GIFT of finding true and unconditional love. Thanks for showing kindness through your article Mike. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very blessed New Year!
