In November 2010 I wrote a post for each letter of the alphabet, except the letter X. I let Brett write that post (the only guest post ever on this blog). Here’s what I would’ve written then. And it’s still true now.
When I first thought of a post for X I was thinking about how they put a big X on pirate treasure maps to mark where the treasure is. If I were to put a big X on a map to mark where my treasure is, it would be an X over our house.
X marks the spot.
Home is where you hang your hat.
I have several hats and they all “hang” (or sit on a table or chair) at our home. And that is my treasure (the people in the home, not the hats). My X has moved every so often as I’ve moved. I’d even say there would be several Xs on the map now as I treasure all of my family and we’re a bit scattered abroad. I tend to think that my treasure is more valuable than any treasure a pirate ever buried. And I’m not going to bury my family either.
