Christmas has been great so far

Christmas has been great so far

I’d like to say I have some profound reflections on Christmas or life in general but I don’t. Christmas is a very busy time when you have kids. They make things a lot of fun too. So far I’ve had a very good time.

One of the hidden gems of this time has been Firefly. The now defunct science fiction TV series that the movie Serinity is based on. We picked it up on DVD with an old wedding gift certificate. This show has been great. If I had to describe it I’d call it a western in space but that doesn’t do it justice. I really like science fiction if it has a plot and I’ve been sorely disappointed in recent years. The main character reminds me of a confederate solidier bitter 5 years after losing the civil war.

The Christmas break has brought relative peace among the blogs. I’m thankful. I like a good honest fight but these days we’ve been tricked to lowering our standards.

I’ve been reflective over the season. I’m sad in some ways. Despite some very wonderful things that happened this year to me some tragic things occured as well. Processing that has been a struggle but it is getting easier. It was hard watching my old life get dismantled piece by piece. First Shantbob moved away. Then ScottyD. Then Mark Trew. Some of the best friends a guy could have. Fortunately they are all still friends just further away than they used to be.

    Thanks LT. I miss you too buddy. I hope that I can return one of these days but time will tell.

    It looks like this was the wrong winter to leave Saskatoon. We have mild weather to say the least. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing what you’ve learned about forgiveness, I really needed that today. You challenged me.

    As painful as I’m sure it is to have your old life seemingly fall apart, what a blessing to have a new one to build up! I love how God never leaves us high and dry, and He always seems to replace whatever is taken away with something greater. You have a great wife! 🙂
