Today I am thankful for:
Being able to see family at Christmastime.
Just like Mary & Joseph made a long journey, my husband,
our kids and I will be going on a long journey as well.
Ok, so the similarities stop there.
We will not be loading a donkey with our luggage.
We will be climbing into a comfy
Expedition with cushy seats and
plenty of room for all seven of us.
And I’m pretty sure our accommodations at Mom’s house
will more closely resemble the Hyatt than a stable.
There is just something about spending time with loved ones
at Christmas, sitting by the fire place
and eating way too much.
I am thankful for our roadtrip. All 925 miles of it.
I am thankful for a husband who planned it
all just to surprise me.
I am thankful I get to take my kids,
including my new daughter in law with me.
And I am thankful I don’t have to travel on a donkey but
instead have a nice, warm vehicle.
