Today people are gathering across the globe with those they love and care about the most. Many will exchange gifts and many won't. Many will have the best experiences of their lives and many will be hanging on to the last bit of life they have. Many will celebrate the birth of the Savior of the world and many will celebrate the victories and successes they've had over the year. Some resent and dread the loss and pain this time of year reminds them of.
This time of year takes me to a few places. I remember many of my fondest childhood memories surrounding this time of year. I grew up in the blended family of the century and could count on spending time with my huge extended family. We had a tradition of gathering at my grandmother's house on Christmas Eve every year for a combination of eating some of the best food, music, video games, and our annual Battle Royale where the whole group of 11 kids would try to beat up my dad...we never quite succeeded. Then we'd decide who's house we would be spending the rest of the two week break at to continue the party.
I also remember the last time I saw my childhood hero alive was at this time of year. David Brown Jr., my dad, my father not by blood but by choice. The same guy we'd try to beat up to prove our manhood. He adopted me at 9 months old and married my mom when I was three. He was recovering from a stroke in the hospital and I was able to spend time with him on what would be his last Christmas on this side.
I hope you've experienced love, joy and time with those you love the most. I pray that you experience God's very best for you and your family this holiday season and throughout 2019.
Remember your life has significance beyond your imagination and there's nothing you can't achieve, so set your goals high as you approach the endless possibilities that come in 2019!
Cherish the time you have with those you love and live your life pursuing your deepest passions...you'll be surprised what you learn and discover along the way!
Happy Holidays from my family to yours!
