Poor Santa! He has a rough night ahead. Lots of chimneys, snow, rain, kids who are trying to sneak a glimpse! I’m so glad I’m not Santa! But I’m sure . . just like always . . he’ll get it done and lots of little children will wake up thrilled with their surprises.
Since Chad is an adult, Christmas morning at our house is a bit toned down. No one is up at the crack of dawn . . well, I guess I am with the chickens but the crack of dawn is about 7:10 a.m. for them these days. Chad’s birthday is in December and his truck insurance is due the first week in January so his combined birthday/Christmas gift for several years has been that I pay his insurance and he is real happy with that arrangement. Since he didn’t have full coverage on his Mazda . .
. . and since the State Trooper was nice enough not to give him a ticket, his insurance didn’t go up because of the accident. Actually the insurance on the pickup is quite a bit less than it was on the Mazda.
Overall, tomorrow will be a low key day for us. We’ll focus more on the celebration of the birth of Christ than on the presents under the tree. We have so much to be thankful for this year. A few things that come to mind that I don’t mind sharing here are:
- My dad’s heart attack was minor, his surgery was successful and he was left with no damage to his hear.
- Chad and Jessi walked away from the accident when they both could have been so seriously injured.
- Vince has a good job. Chad has a good job as far as a part-time job for a college student goes.
- We’re all happy and healthy! What more could we ask for?
My Christmas wish for all of you is that you’re happy, healthy, and safe and that even if your life isn’t perfect this year, you can find reason to celebrate!
