Vacation Thoughts

We're in Vail, Colorado this week with our two children, their spouses, and our four grandchildren. We've been looking forward to this family time for a few months. Finding a week that ten people could clear their calendars to come was like Eisenhower planning D-Day. But we managed to do it.

Yesterday, we all arrived at various times of the afternoon, sorted out the bedrooms and bathrooms at the condo. It's a great feeling to see all our family in one place for a few days. And being here in the Rocky Mountains only adds to it. The clear air, beautiful sky and the scenery all add up to one of those special times in life.

Our internet service is limited so I may or may not get to post every day this week. If not, I'll be back to five days next week for sure.

Our son and his family drove up from Texas and on the way, they had an accident. A car pulled out in front of them and Amy had to swerve fast and they landed in the ditch. All four were alright, but they had to get a tow truck and then buy two new tires. Thinking about how close we came to having a real tragedy makes this time together even more of a treasure to savor. It makes you know that we must not take life for granted. It's a gift every single day, even on the days when things don't seem to go our way. Hope today is a good day for all.
