This is a special time of year for us with a lot happening over the years.
Linda and I married on Christmas Day 1979. We got married at home with a very small ceremony with our parents and my brother and one girlfriend and a minister. 41 years later we are still together!
December 26, 1983 at 1:39am our daughter Abbey was born. Linda was in labor all Christmas day and Abbey was born right after midnight. We had a home birth (on purpose!) Here we are 4 days later with a little one who never slept and neither did we!
We added a special girl, Rashetta. She came to us that summer as a fresh air kid from Queens NY.
She flew off the bus in a whirl wind, asked if she can call us Mom and Dad and spent every summer and holiday with us since she was 7 years old! The girls were different as night and day, boy do we have stories.
And I am a New Years baby... born 1/1/1953 , yes I will be celebrating 68 years of a very blessed life.
So we have a lot of celebrating to do and it will all look different this year but the blessings still flow.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
