Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

It’s Christmas time again and another year has passed. We have had an amazing year of growth and transformation here at Moore Heating & Air Conditioning. Looking back on 2013, I must say we are very Blessed.

This time a year ago, I wrote about my Grandfather, Carl Bailey. He was not just “Gramps” to me though; he was the person in my life that embodied all things Christmas. He did so with a big jolly smile on his face and he was always ready give and receive the biggest hugs.

As I started to write this today, I realized how Christmas is simply not the same anymore. Not to say that I don’t still love Christmas, I do… But there is a bit of magic that is missing. Gramps had a way of bringing our Family together… When we were at Grandma and Grandpa’s, we were welcomed and loved. It did not matter who was not getting along with who or what struggle you had in your life at the time. With their open arms also came great times of fellowship with each other; that’s what I miss the most. I miss the fact that thirty or forty of us could get together and simply enjoy our day together. Looking back, I realize it was simply love; we were all loved unconditionally while we were in their home.

About a month ago or so, I was going through my dresser and came across a gift that I had given Gramps for Christmas years ago. I don’t remember when I had put it there but it must have been there years. As I opened the box, I saw that it was a Pocket Watch with a Silver Dollar inlayed in the top of the watch and folded inside the case I found the tag that I had filled out for his gift. To: Gramps…..From: Jon. My mom must have given it to me a year or so after he passed away.

I am not sure how old I was when I gave him the watch, but by the writing, I would say that I was in Junior High. It instantly brought tears to my eyes as I stood there and held that little box with the Silver Dollar inlayed Pocket Watch. It was the fact that he kept the tag that really touched me. It instantly reminded me of his love for me, not that I ever forgot it but more so because it had been such a long time since I have felt his love. Gramps has been gone for what seems like forever and I await the day when we reconnect in Heaven. I look forward to seeing him for the first time, seeing that Jolly Smile and getting another Big Hug!

I know how blessed we were at Moore Heating & Air Conditioning in 2013 and I thank you, our Customers, and our Staff for that. We worked hard, played harder and loved each other through the good and through the not so good.

So here’s to another great year. May God Bless you and your Family with abundance in 2014!
