Giving Thanks for the Holidays

Hello folks.  It's been so long since I've done a post on MC.  I've been so busy with life, family, and home.  There was a time, when it was just me, that I would've spent much of this time creating and just paying attention to Steve (me).  Now, I use some of that time to pay closer attention to family and friends.  For instance, we decided to travel to Houston, Texas to see family for Thanksgiving.  When we first told our family that we would travel to see them for the Thanksgiving holiday, they didn't believe us.  Besides, it takes about 22 hours by car to get to Houston from the DC Metro area.  As a matter of fact, everyone we told thought that we were nuts, but we wanted to do it.  So, we hit the road.  It was beautiful open highway.  My wife and I had long talks about life and God as we traveled down the road.  We didn't go straight there, so we stopped in Atlanta to see my family.   it was nice to see them, but we had to keep moving.  We finally made it to Houston and had a relaxing, but fun stay.

In the end, we spent quality time with each other, and with family that we usually see in passing moments.  It's amazing how much more you get to know someone when you spend just two days with them.  Yeah, we only stayed two days because we had to use four days to travel there and back.  I'm still sort of tired, but it was worth it.  I'm not sure if I would do it again, but I thank God for that quality time with my loved ones.  I hope that you will take the time, and go out of your way if you have to just to spend some quality time.  Happy Holidays!  Peace~
