Merry Christmas 2009

We would like to wish all of you a very merry Christmas. Hopefully this finds you all well and happy during this special time of year. It is a great time to reflect upon the love our Heavenly Father has for each one of us. As we celebrate the Savior's birth, let us remember the vast importance of His life here on earth. As I ponder upon what has happened in 2009, I cannot help but to be thankful and very humble for the blessings that have come our way.

This year on May 29th little Taylor joined us here on earth. He has been an absolute joy and blessing in our lives. I have also been blessed to continue to have a job with a great company while Debbie's company has allowed her to continue to work in a way that allows her to take care of Taylor and still have adult interaction. During the financially difficult times we recognize these blessings. We also have been blessed with a snow blower. It has saved my back and shoulders. I am also happy that I can now repay all those who helped shovel my driveway for the past two years.

This October I was blessed to have Tate Publishing offer to publish my first novel, "The Broken Council", in my series called "The Guardian Chronicles". I am hopeful that this summer I will be doing book signings once it has been released. Right now I am working on the second book in the trilogy. So, even though I have taken the remainder of the year off from work, I am still working...on my book.
