This is my Christmas post disclaimer… (And look at that, it counts as part of my Christmas post messages).
I wanted everyone to know that I slightly cheated with my Christmas post messages. See, as I pointed out 1 month ago today, I managed to find a way to remove a certain event of my life off the calendar. That event was known as my birthday.
It was really rather easy… All it took was the following:
- A Christmas party in the morning (8:00am to about 1:00pm)
- A Highschool reunion in the afternoon (2:00pm to about 5:00pm)
- and a Company Christmas party in the evening (7:00pm to about 11:00pm)
- And to fill in the gaps: my cousins arrived in town.
That said, a lot of the gifts that I am passing off as Christmas gifts were actually birthday gifts as well. In fact, I’m not sure I can separate in my mind ANY birthday gifts this year (other than some cards with money in them).
So although I must admit this was probably my best Christmas ever (which made up for what I felt was a rather dissappointing Christmas last year), you must also realize it was probably my best birthday ever (since the two events have forever been linked).
I also should mention, just to be a complete as possible… I also believe many people see this as Justin’s “last” Christmas with the family (and as a “kid”). Something about the fact that I am getting married in 7 months.
May my many blessings this year find a way to bless you as well this year… And may you continued to be as blessed as I have been for years to come.
