Merry Christmas

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Jesse Clifton & Associates, REALTORS® AREC License #15292

As a boy, I remember the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas feeling like an eternity. Before the tryptophan in the Thanksgiving turkey had a chance to work its magic I was ready for Christmas to arrive.  There were more mouth-watering treats from grammy's, like her world famous nana puddin' I've yet to perfect after all these years or the fudge I used to sneak from the kitchen that would now likely put me in a coma. There were lists to be made of our too-soon-forgotten favorite toys, endless waiting in department store lines and of course the long wait for Christmas break.  And then there were the parties. The ones we weren't supposed to be awake during, but still managed to be apart of, at least peripherally. Oh, how the days moved so slowly...

Today, however, that same span of time seems to go by faster than I can say "gained five pounds".  Where does it go?  A few years ago we were going home from a Christmas Eve party and stopped at a local convenience store to top off the fuel tank.  When I went in to pay a customer was standing at the register lamenting the lack of turkeys in the store. Talk about behind the curve.  I can't say that I've ever shopped for a turkey on Christmas Eve but I now understand how it could happen.

As we prepare for the big day I wanted to take a second and wish you a very Merry Christmas. Our wish for you this holiday season and indeed throughout the year is good health, a joyful heart and the love of family and friends.  May you be richly blessed... Always!

Jesse, The oh so short time from Thanksgiving to Christmas is my favorite time of year. And yes, how slowly it went when I was a child, and how fast it flies now.

I know this year has been full of challenges for you and Kathy, yet though it all you have been a shining light to those of us who know you. I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas, and I pray that the New Year will bring you wonderful things.

I am blessed to be able to call you friend, my life is richer for it in many ways.

Now can you please slow down today? I have way to much to do!!!!

Good morning my friend,

You are so right about the time FLYING by faster and faster everyday.  I am just now planning Christmas dinner, gee I hope Wally World has some hamburger left by the time I get there.  :-))

I hope that you and Kathy have the BEST Christmas ever and that the new year will bring with it an abundance of health and happiness for both of you.  May God richly bless you guys.

Merry Christmas to both of you. What is the temperature outside where you live? I came through there last May and it was about 65 degrees.
