Ronnie ’ s Favorite Christmas Gift
Eight years ago , we awoke Christmas morning to find snow on the ground . Our 22 year old son was visiting . He got up announcing that he would be back , he had something to do . Without any explanation , he was off in the snow ... missing the big breakfast that I had just fixed . It was one of those perfect opportunities , as a parent , to get upset . I had no idea what he was up to . I calmed down and tried to focus on the meaning of the day .
My son returned several hours later , telling me he had my Christmas gift in his truck . As I looked in the back , I remembered a conversation that my son and I had while driving down I-75 . I saw a vintage billboard that was falling down . I pointed to it and commented , “ I wish I had that ”. As a professional photographer , I have always loved finding unusual backgrounds to photograph people .
He got up Christmas morning with one thing in mind ; to get a meaningful gift for his dad . Isn ’ t it funny , the most meaningful gift I ever received , didn ’ t cost a thing ... and it will be remembered forever !
