favorite childhood memory Tuesday, Sep 15 2009 

I have alot of favorite childhood memories but my most memorable was when the greatest Christmas wish ever came true.  Let me start by explaining that when I was three years old my Dad was almost killed by a tractor trailer while at work for the New Jersey Turnpike.  It was after this accident that through bloodwork they found out my father had Bile Duct Dysfunction.  That began our four years of an unending nightmare.  It was Christmas of 2000 and my father had less then two weeks to live.  He had some very disappointing times as he was waiting for a match for his transplant.  I remember my mom trying very hard to make it the best Christmas ever for all of us, as she was not sure if it would be our last.  I did not know at the time that my dad might not be around for another Christmas.  But on January6,2001 my father recieved his transplant. That is the Feast of the Ephiphany, what a great day for a new life.  I always associate that with Christmas and the Three Wise Men. That gift on January 6 of my Dad was my favorite childhood memory.
