    For the last few years, things here have been tight to say the least. Last year was a little better,but not what I'd hoped.
    This year however,things are looking up.
    My oldest turned 18. he's never complained about not having his own car,cause he knew how tight things are.
    I am very blessed this year. I fell into a new job that pays good and I really enjoy it which is a bigger plus. A week ago I found a car for my son at aprice that I could afford. it's in great running running shape,it just needs some paint and tires. Thanks a lot to my wife tammy, we have worked out things so that it wil be here on christmas morning for him.
    I am so very thankful for my family, and the brothers and sisters here. You guys have always been such a huge wall of support for me. I wish each and everyone of you that you feel the joy that is in my heart right now.
    i cannot wait till my son opens his last present on christmas. One that truely comes from my heart for him being so understanding at such a young age on the workings and hardships of being a parent.
    I love them so very much.
    God bless you all this wonderful season and please say a prayer for our boys and girls serving overseas.
    Merry christmas my friends!
    (ps, in case you're wondering, his look is "my christmas present")

    Keith,

    I'm sure "that look" will be a great gift.

    Im sure he will appreciate the car even more now after the long wait. I have a step daughter (14) that has no concept of money and thinks it grows on trees. Glad to hear you got a better job that you enjoy what you do. Maybe all the hard work is finally paying the rewards. Merry X-mas brother

    Keith,
    What an awesome present to give your son. I'm sure that from having to wait, from seeing you and Tammy going through hard times, the car will mean all the more to him. I know how much this opportunity means for you and Tammy. I wish you and your family a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy New Year.

    God Bless, Brother
