As the world has grown smaller with technology and travel options, more and more people have to go longer distances to be with family. That was never a part of the routine for me or Hamp as we grew up, nor as we had our own family. My, how times have changed!! Yesterday found me at the airport picking up the majority of our family so we could be together during Christmas.
Tiffany and Michael (along with Moosey) landed first and after a 30 minute or so delay from his original arrival time, Hamp made it as well.
While it would be easy to be sad over who's not here with us this year, I'm finding that cooperative weather, safe travels, and successful surgery for Matthew makes being thankful for who IS here the better choice. And of course, the reason we even celebrate Christmas at all is because of the love and sacrifice of our Father God in the gift of His Son. May you have a blessed Christmas season this year and I look forward to sharing more with you in the coming days.
