Since most of the aunts and uncles in my family are getting up there in age, or have already made their transitions, our family has had a lull in holiday get-togethers for many years, but last year my cousin Karen woke up one day and had the almost burning desire to begin the traditional Christmas dinner anew and what a great success it was. There were people there I had not seen in years and it was a wonderful time filled with joy, laughter and love.
Weather permitting I’ll make the 250 mile trip tomorrow morning to be with my family although the weather report does not look good. I can easily deal with the snow, but as anyone from Wyoming knows, when you mix strong winds with snow, winter trips can be quite a trial if not downright dangerous.
