Welcome to our newest member, flockman02
My name is Ron, I am a Christmas nut always have been always will be. I am first and foremost a stay at home dad that has an evening job at a retail/grocery establishment. After my second son was born I stepped down from my management position, so my wife and I don't have to pay for daycare. My wife is a teacher in the town we live, so people recognize us everywhere in our little town.
My wife and I have been married for 9 years. We have 2 boys aged 6 and 3, both are young Christmas nuts.

I have loved Christmas as long as I remember
from seeing the lights on all the houses, to seeing if I could stay awake to see Santa.
Christmas has been the one constant in my life it has always been there for me, through the rough times of my parents divorce when I was 10 y/o or my mother's passing when I was 16.
Everyone always tried to make it something special for myself and sister when we were young no matter what was going on. I now believe that is why I love this time of year more than any other because of the efforts of my family to hold it above any other time of year. I get to make the season special for my boys now, whether it be by playing the music decorating the house and yard or just playing the dvd's. The memories the season has brought have always warm and it is no wonder why I look forward to making more of these memories every year. My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story my favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night. My favorite Christmas artist is Bing Crosby.
Well if I ran on a little bit I am sorry I am new to blogging, it sounds always better in your mind.
I will try to keep posting and making it interesting for all who read.

Let me start by saying this is going to be a tough week for me. Saturday is the 19th anniversary of one of the toughest days of my life, my mother's death. It is really brings home the reality of life and how short it could be. My mother was only 36
when she passed, breast cancer took her within two years of her discovering it. I know it is not related but I am 35 years old and being 36 is starting to freak me out a little bit, it may be natural to fear an age when you lose a parent, but I don't know. I miss her everyday, and I wish she could've met my wife and grandchildren, she would have loved all of them. My mother spent the last 7 years working for God as a reverend in a Born-again Christian church, she loved the Lord and there wasn't anything she wouldn't do to help the people of the church, sometimes helping them more than herself. I am looking at this week as a tough emotional roller coaster, remembering the good times and crying through the difficult memories.
Closing out on a better note, I will hopefully be going back to work at a full 40 hours come June if there is an opening for me. My wife and I have discussed this since my oldest boy is going to Kindergarten next fall, it would be time to put my younger son in daycare, he needs a change in his routine, this way we can be more of a family again. I see my wife in passing, when she gets home I leave, the only day we our together as a family is on Sunday.

    Hi Ron. I completely sympathize with you about your mom. I can also certainly understand why being 36 is starting to freak you out. Your mom passing at 36 is far, far too young. I am so sorry. I identify a great deal with your posts. My favorite Christmas Song too is Oh Holy Night. Therer are a couple of artists I like, one being Kelly Clarkson and another being Josh Groban but I just really love the song. It really touches my heart because of Jesus' gift to mankind.

    Again, you have my sincere sympathies on the passing of your mother. My mother passed in September 1998, just 12 days after my birthday. My father and both my brothers are also gone as well as my first husband so there are many sad times during the year and can certainly undertand your sadness. I will say a special prayer for you and your beautiful family. Try not to be too sad. I am sure your mom would want you happy. Take care. Caninemom3 (Louanne)
