A Christmas Gift of My Hot Air to Mary

By
Real Estate Agent

SpacerIt was good fortune to be invited to my business partner's birthday party at Uptown Glassworks in Renton a few weeks ago. Nina's party was a wonderful occasion to meet her great friends, including many past clients and customers . . . folks she has helped in many ways throughout her life.

The unusual fun of the evening was the opportunity to blow glass. This was my first time, and I selected a Christmas ornament and a color of glass I knew Mary would enjoy. While inflating the glass ball, by blowing through a tube, I realized my breath was being captured for as long as the glass remained unbroken.

 Christmas Ornament

A few days ago I found a pigment that would be permanent on glass and inscribed the ornament to Mary.

It was given to Mary this morning and now it hangs on our tree. To me it will always symbolize the fact that the greatest gift we can give another is the gift of life.

By giving our life force to others in a loving manner, we help sustain them. And that makes for a meaningful life.

Blessings to all this Holiday Season!

Interesting title. I said 'gotcha' loudly and clearly to me. The post was not what I really expected...it was quite sweet. Thanks for sharing.

Vickie, glad the title pulled you in.

Thanks William, my wife is very fond of her collection of ornaments, going back over half a century from dear relatives no longer with us.

Have a great New Year Dan!

Thanks Sue, a few hours ago I told Mary how lucky I am.

I'm sure I got the better deal.  Best to you in 2010!
