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.

I have a little time on my hands today so I thought I would just do a little nonsense writing. Since I have been on vacation for nearly two weeks, I thought I would do a little thing on strange numbers or happenings in my life.
1.) The Number 13
I know some people have a "fear" or superstition of this number, but I do not have either of those. The number just has occurred on very meaningful dates in my life: My mother passed away on March, 13, my oldest son was born on April, 13, and my younger son was born not on the 13th, but his birth time was 1:13PM or in military time 13:13. Does this number have a specific meaning or is it just coincidence. Just one little mystery in my life.
2.)I also do not believe to much into ESP, or psychics, but on a few occasions I have had visions of not good things, the first one is when my mother was going through her breast cancer treatments at UMass Medical Center in Worcester, MA. My sister and I would visit her in the hospital, and of course we would ride the elevator as any 15 and 12 year old kids would do. The elevator stopped and opened on the 6th floor, nobody got on, and I got a feeling of dread and fear, I talked about it with my mother, her being a reverend I thought she could explain it to me. She just listened and said people would say the same thing at her previous place of employment about a subfloor, but nothing ever happened there. For the next year we would go to the hospital for her treatments, until she got really sick and passed away. She passed away on the 6th floor, her one and only stay on that floor. The next time it happened was only a couple months ago, I was at work and all of the sudden I stopped and saw in my mind, a vision of my 2 y/o son running into the street. I got home and my wife was talking to me and she told me that LC ran away from her and ran into the street, but nobody was coming but she caught him by the back of the collar of his shirt leaving a scratch on his neck. I was a little freaked, and I told her about what I saw when I was at work, which in turn made her a little freaked. It is amazing what sometimes happens in the human mind, but I know I am not a soothsayer of any sorts.
3.)I remember when I was dating an ex-girlfriend, I had just met someone who was to become my wife. I had been with my ex for more than 3 years, but I had a feeling when I met this new person that she was the "one." I was so confused on what was going on because I had loved my ex but I had a hard time understanding my feelings of this new woman. I asked a number of people for advice, and everyone always said "Everything happens for a reason." So I prayed to God the Send me a sign prayer, and a few days later I went to my grandmother's house and I was in the garage with my uncle I looked up on the wall above a window, and there was a literal sign written in French with my future wife's last name on it. I knew that was the sign I was looking for and a few months later we started dating and nearly 12 years later here we are. So needless to say I believe in "Love at first sight."
Those are just a few stories of what makes me, me.

    What a great post, Ron. It is amazing how "odd" or "weird" things seem to comes to us with information. I am so sorry about your mother but I am glad your son is okay and your wife sounds just wonderful. I have "visions" or "deja-vu" like you have had also. The day my first husband died I had a "vision" of him laying in the back room in a pool of blood. I am glad everything is okay with you and I hope it continues to be. Take care.
