Day 7: Seven Wonderful things that happened in 2015

7 Wonderful things that happened in 2015

  1. Moved to Colorado – If you’ve been following me at all this year you already know I moved to to Colorado at the beginning of the year. Me wanting to move to Colorado has been a dream of mine for a long time and it finally happened
  2. Reconnected with family – Although this was under less than favorable circumstances. Two funerals. We’re even talking about getting together for a cousins day for those of that’s going to be in the DC area for Christmas and we established a committee to get together for a long weekend. It’s all official-like too. A ‘President’ so to speak, a secretary, someone who’s in charge of the entertainment, a treasurer (that’s me). Not sure why they put me charge of money. I’m a skinflint.
  3. Met some really great people – Making friends for me is not easy and those that I have had the pleasure to come in contact with over the last 11 months, I value.
  4. Discovered Voodoo Donuts, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Duffyrolls – There is an apparent theme here.
  5. Got my Colorado Driver’s License
  6. Drove my car across country
  7. Got my car registered in Colorado

2015 was a pretty exciting year for me. And I look forward to what 2016 has in store for me. I have a feeling my aunt is right. I’m going to ‘Blow up’.

Day 4: Four Christmas Traditions

4 Christmas Traditions

I really had to think about this one because at first glance it seemed like our family didn’t have any Christmas traditions, but then as I thought – we did/do.

Christmas really hasn’t changed much since I was a child. We went to church and afterwards headed over to my grandparents houses. I didn’t consider going to church on Christmas day a Christmas tradition at first, because to me it was like going to church on any other Sunday or Easter Sunday, or Palm Sunday. Perhaps the only real difference was service was a bit longer because we had a Christmas production.

My parents would Continue reading

Day 1: One Thing I Want for Christmas

1 Thing you want for Christmas

I mulled this thing over a lot. And came up with probably what the average person comes up with – peace on earth, for people to get along, an end to all senseless violence, and yadda yadda yadda. But if I’m going along those lines and I tell you the truth – yes, I want all of those things and I could Continue reading

God is Good 100% of the Time

Prayers are answered. This isn’t the post I planned, but I wanted to share. After spending lots of time on blended knee, it finally happened. My uncle got a new liver.

Liver cancer. Diagnosed late, but thank God it hadn’t metastasized to any other part of his body.

The first and second livers were not good and somebody who was worse off bumped him for the third, but the fourth was all his. And he took possession of it today.

Thank you to the family that unselfishly gave of their love one to strangers and gave them the gift of life too. You are a blessing to more than you will ever know. And I hope you know that even though they may no longer be of this earthly realm they still live on.

Peace and blessings to you.
