Why the 1224? My twitter name, my email.
What a perfect day to explain why my name always ends with 1224.
There are really 3 reasons:
1. Because of this day. The date of this post. Christmas eve. When I was growing up Christmas Eve was the day. The day full of excitement, tradition, and the many questions of what tomorrow could bring. The one night during the year where I would go to bed at night and just lay there with my eyes wide open in anticipation of the morning. The one night as a kid where I woke up every hour of the night wondering if it was time to get up yet? And now, I want to have that 1224 to my name for the reminder. The reminder that I want to live all my nights when I go to bed as if it is 12/24. The reminder that God has blessed me with that next day, that next morning, and I should be super excited that I get the chance to take full advantage of it. Excited to wake up and live with a PURPOSE. Excited to wake up to a beautiful, loving wife. Excited to wake up and be in a warm house. Excited to have the ability to have a job. Excited and blessed to have the relationships I have around me.
2. The street I grew up on. 1224 Lynn St. It is my roots. It is my home. It is where I come from. 1224 will always be my home. Even if my parents were to move out of that address. 1224 would still be my home, and where I was raised. So I grew up with 1224 being a part of me and I want to keep it that way.
3. It is great when you sign up for something online because on most websites the chances of their being another cking1224 as a sign in name is highly unlikely. So that is a huge plus for me.
I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas Eve, a 1224, as we look forward to celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ tomorrow!
