Christmas Wishes

This Christmas, my mind wanders to days long gone and those days that are yet to come. I think about my family while I was growing up.

A large family by anyone’s measure: seven children, a loving mother speaking broken English, and a father who at times worked three jobs. I remember writing my letter to Santa with great hope and anticipation of what would be under the tree on Christmas morning. Throughout the years I began to realize that my Christmas wish list was just that: “wishes.” The expense of raising such a large family didn’t leave much for presents. I was blessed, but didn’t realize it until many years later. I had a loving mother and father who made every effort to ensure that I, and the remaining six siblings, attended parochial school. Growing up in Los Angeles, CA was rough and tough in those days, and the sacrifice of my parents was their “wish,” hope, and prayer that our lives would be better than their own. So as I write my Christmas list this year, it’s more than a “wish” list; just like my parents, I am “wishing,” hoping, and praying that my family and yours will be better off in the days and years to come.

MC900250879My Christmas this year is one of love, sacrifice, and thanks. The love of my family has never been stronger. I have a wonderful wife, two children, and four grandchildren. I am blessed to be a part of an extended and much larger family: The Real Estate Group. An extended family made up of different faiths and backgrounds. A family that sincerely cares for their brothers and sisters.

I pray daily for our men and women, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters that sacrifice their lives daily in the defense of our beloved nation so that I may sit with my family in peace this Christmas season. My prayers go especially to my TREG family that may have an empty chair at the Christmas table honoring those that could not be present.

This Christmas I give special thanks to my parents who were instrumental in the formation of my character, morals, and beliefs. I give thanks to my immediate family for the daily joy they bring to my life. I give thanks to my TREG brothers and sisters for their support, love, and compassion for one another.

There have been challenges; who doesn’t have them? This Christmas I can state with utmost clarity that my past was great and my present day life is awesome. The future can only be OVER THE TOP! Remember, “wishes” do come true; sometimes they are just disguised and unrecognizable at the moment.

Merry Christmas!
