The Simple Joys of Christmas: Time With Family

OK, to be honest, some might not consider this a joy.  The hustle and bustle to get from one house to the next, trying to spend equal time with everyone, or you know you’ll hear about it for the next year.  With the increase in divorce comes the increase in stops along the way, and the days of It’s a Wonderful Life seem a distant memory.  But no matter what the cost, it’s still family.  These are still the people that are there, rain or shine, sink or swim, with a hug and a smile and a hope for your best.

So the next time a complaint rises to your lips, and you feel so exhausted by the running, maybe take a second to stop and realize.  This is your family, and it is worth a mile of the journey to see them.
