Several of you have told me that it will be a wonderful Christmas this year because we can spend time with the kids and grandchildren. You’re right! Living in Virginia, we would make the ten hour drive and generally arrive at my MIL’s shortly after supper because we would inevitably hit the five o’clock traffic (let alone the last minute shoppers in and around every Mall we had to pass).
The next few days we would attempt to cram in visits with everyone to the point where we would go to one relative’s house, stay a few hours, then move on to the next. Constantly shuffling from one home to another as they would extend such thoughtful invitations. Before we knew it, the few days would pass and we would hit the road at 5:00am to once again make the ten hour trek back to Virginia. After doing that for eight years, we are more than happy to say that this year we will enjoy our Christmas in Connecticut. Life is good...and sometimes...letting it happen is even better!!
Here's hoping you ALL have the most wonderful Christmas ever!!
I know I will...:)
