Christmas Advent 2015 - Day 12 - Wonderfully Dysfunctional: It Must be Genetic by Buffi Neal

Wonderfully Dysfunctional: It Must be Genetic by Buffi Neal

The true story of... A gypsy mother who refused to wear a bra and a father who refused to leave his first wife. A brother who slept under the coffee table and a sister who was kidnapped. A cheating minister, a missing uncle and a feisty red-headed grandmother who was longing to leave it all. 

I always knew my family was unusual, but I was lucky enough to have escaped that gene. Or was I? In a nursing home, seated next to my dying grandmother, I looked around at my family and it occurred to me that I fit right in. No bra, dirty sneakers and two ex husbands. Maybe it really is genetic - maybe I never had a chance. With the help of my siblings, I began a journey of self discovery as we recalled stories of our youth including juicy family secrets, inappropriate practical jokes and betrayal. 

 On a journey to find normal, I found myself instead.

Buffi Neal is a free-spirited mother of two living in a small town in central New Jersey. She earned her Master of Computer Science from Lehigh University and holds a degree in Mathematics and Physics. Buffi is the second oldest of five children. Growing up without designer clothes, heat or even toilet paper, gave her inner strength and perseverance. She worked her way through college cleaning houses, was awarded an academic scholarship, and went on to become CEO of a successful business. Buffi loves the beach and loves to write.

The first thing Buffi thinks of at the thought of Christmas is...
Tradition, family, smiles, hugs, laughter, ribbons and a little tear for my Christmas past.

What makes Christmas special for Buffi...
Wrapping presents. Each present is wrapped as if it would be opened by the pope himself: thick ribbons, trinkets and ornaments. Watching my teen daughter now wrapping along side of me is a feeling I can't describe.

Buffi's Christmas Wish for 2015…
World peace of course. AND... to win the coveted family Christmas-card contest. My brother has taken the prize for a few years with his Norman-Rockwell-family-beach photos. My kids and I have to come up with something unique, funny and heartwarming, which requires them to spend time with mom - win.
