The Best Christmas Gifts

Christmas day is a day for wonders and suprises. The best ones are not wrapped with pretty paper and a bow. This year I was reminded of that once again. Christmas Eve came and we thought of loved ones and where they were. We talked of missing our son and his wife and the grandsons. Actually we were relieved with the forecast of bad weather that they would be safe in Wisconsin. Moments after that conversation someone knocked on the front door. We wondered who would be visiting and when we opened the door, let's just say our children are often responsible for sending their parents into a heart attack. There they were grinning from ear to ear! Son, wife and grandsons. Needless to say it was even more exciting since this was our first seeing in person of a new grandson born November 16. It is quite wonderful to have them here and so our best present this year came wrapped in a Saturn across hundreds of miles. I thank God that he kept them safe on the road. What was going to be just another Christmas, suddenly became a chorus of Angels singing Noel! Tell me about yours.

About Me

My childhood was spent growing up on a farm in the mountains of northern Pennsylvania. In those years I learned the lessons that would mold my character and moral center. In my teens I moved to a small city in southeastern PA. Like many teens I had my rebellion and found the futility of it. During my late teens I moved to central PA and in high school lost my heart to the girl who is now my wife. Presently I'm well into midlife and slowing rapidly. The things I used to do, I can't even remember. Married as 2021 for 46 years, we have a son, a daughter and five grandchildren. My son has two boys, my daughter three girls, I love irony! I am adding 2 great grandsons! I'm self-employed for most of 35 years in construction. Doing a project for a customer and getting their approval is wonderful and inspiring. I started writing when my children were younger. I did some stories for them and over time it became more of an interest. I now have four completed novels and several shorts and am working towards getting one or more published. One short has been published.
