Christmas with my family is always a very special time. For years and years we’d all get together at my Grandparents on Christmas Eve. Since they’ve passed away and my Uncle has taken over the house we’ve continued to have Christmas’s there. Unfortunately last year was my first time not making it. I spent last Christmas at my sister’s in Florida and luckily all my two brothers, two sisters & their husbands, all 7 of my nieces & nephews, and Mom made it down around Christmas. This year I’m planning on spending it in Florida again. I hate that living in Alabama has taken me so far away from my family up in West Virginia but I’m always thinking of them and praying for them. I really do have one of the greatest families you could ever ask for. All of my aunts and uncles and cousins spending time together is always a great time. We also try to do a beach trip every year, although it didn’t happen this year we do have a house rented for next summer in Myrtle Beach! There’s also nothing that makes me more proud than seeing my younger cousins and neices and nephews growing up every time I get to see them!
This year at Christmas will feel a lot different for me though. I’m not really excited about it this year. I’m not even decorating because I won’t be at my place. I’m just ready for the holidays to get over so I can start planning on some contract work to get me through the winter so I can spend spring and summer working on my golf game. It would be nice not to have to worry about income and just continue pursuing my dream but when you have bills and have to live you need the $ coming in. Hopefully I’ll find a contract position that will last about 4 months so by April I can take the next 6 months off and get in as much golf practice as possible. I really need this 2 year plan to happen.
I do hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a very Merry Christmas!
Home from class and right to work in the shop. When your godson needs a cardboard race car he can sit in for school, you make it. No question. Top of the order pile. And maybe you let that paint fly a little bit. There are things, and there are important things. #familia#family#godsons#nephews#hiunclesteve#mastersdegree
