HAPPINESS is to have EVERYTHING,
NOT the need to have EVERYTHING.
12.15.2019-Abby and Michael visit for an early Christmas
This would be the second time in a week that we’ve cleaned the coach in preparation of family visiting us. The dust is gone, the twinkle lights are shining and we’ve begun hanging many of our travel novelties from the lights.
It’s such a joy to have family, yes family, take time out of their busy lives and spend a few hours with the old folks. It’s so easy to watch our kids grow and develop into young adults, and before you know it, they’re on their own and have little need for those of us who have watched them grow and develop, and have seen them embark into their twenties. It’s still a thrill taking part in their youthful conversations.
The meal Carla served was scrumptious. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and a delightful melody of melon and berries and was served solely as an appetizer to the smiles and antics of our guests as they opened their gifts.
Not having seen either of them in almost a year. Our concern was; have they changed? Luckily both Michael and Abby are now young adults with the youthfulness they possessed in their earlier years. Michael and Abby enjoy our key gift for this year; a copy of our travels in a 2020 calendar.
Still studying the travel Calendar. Carla patiently goes into detail concerning the individual pictures. I can’t help but think that given a little time for them to get on their feet, they to may embrace the joys of traveling. I only hope they don’t wait until they are 67 like me, life is just to short.
The day is moving along so fast. Outside the temps are in the high 70’s and beckons us to leave the comfort of the coach inside and go outside and explore even another unanticipated gift for the kids. Years ago we were given a Manger for the Christmas season but this one was made up of tiny kitty caricatures. The younger folks can enjoy this much more than us. From the looks on their faces they enjoyed it.
You’ll never feel you have enough money to retire,
however, once you feel you have enough money,
will you have enough time?
