The holidays are when most of us get so wrapped up in all the business events and family gatherings that it can seem like everything is nonstop. For myself, well, this has always been an extra special time of year. December is my birth month on top of being the month of Christmas and many other holidays all the way through to the New Year. Dec. 3rd is my big day. Depending on when you read this issue, my birthday may have already passed. Regardless, this year is one of those monumental, milestone birthdays: I turn 40 this year. To celebrate the big 4-0, I’ll be checking off a couple of my bucket list items this year. Alison is taking me to Las Vegas to see George Strait in concert, then we’re going to the National Finals Rodeo on Dec. 5–6. Celebrating the Season and a Milestone I’m also looking forward to Christmas. Christmas has always been special to me ever since I was very young. I was that boy who truly believed in the magic of the holiday. I still try to engage in various activities every December to make it feel like the holiday season I grew up with. I look for every excuse to put a little extra magic into the holiday. As part of that, Alison and I generally put up our Christmas tree early. We have an artificial tree these days, but I had the real thing when I was a kid. Back then, my parents would take me to the Christmas tree farm in Winnsboro, Texas. While we were out there, we would go on hayrides and cut our own tree down. Those were great times. Throughout the season, Alison and I like to go look at Christmas lights around the area. Prairie Lights in Grand Prairie and Interlochen Christmas Lights in Arlington are a couple of our favorites. I’ve never seen a George Strait show or been to the NFR, but I’ve been looking forward to both for a long time. It will be great to cross these off my bucket list!
hundreds of kids from all over DFW get presents that they otherwise would not get.
As 2019 comes to a close, I don’t know if this is where is necessarily where I anticipated my life to be at 40. However, I think I have a great life today. I’m healthy and have a great wife and family. I also get to help people every day through crisis situations, and that’s very rewarding. I also feel like so many great things have happened. Alison and I celebrated our one-year anniversary. The law firm has gone from a true solo practice to a team of six. God has really blessed us, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2020.
With that, from our family to yours, have a Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a wonderful new year.
