Christmas Post

And so Christmas will be here in less than 12 hours…it will be the first time in 10 years that i’m not performing in any way, and also the first time in 10 years that my dad will.  What a change of events.

Yet other than that, this Christmas seems very different from any other that i’ve had.  The rest may just be a fog but i’m pretty sure that i wasn’t in this state of mind when Christmas approached in the past 22 years of my life.  Could it be that i’m actually growing up?

(heads shake from side to side)

Ok maybe not.  But definitely i’ve had more on my mind this year or so than any other year, perhaps all the years combined.  Maybe that’s why i’m feeling this way today. It’s really been a journey of ups and downs and i can’t help but look back and think about who and what i was as compared to myself in the mirror today.  I would like to be able to say that i’ve changed for the better, learned more, become wiser, and all that.  (i could spark a discussion on what wisdom really is right here, but i shall save that for another time when a more learned Jon takes this blog into his hands:))
As the day approaches, i hope we all remember the reason that Christmas is celebrated.  I hope we think about the cause for the day being remembered, and it’s definitely not one of Santa and his troupe of Dasher, Prancer, Comet, Vixen, etc.

It was, and is, however, about giving.
