One of the best things about Christmas is when a family gathers at one place to celebrate.
It's not easy these days.
Families are separated by the realities we live with like members having to work on Christmas Day.
The challenges are myriad ranging from politics separating families to the cost of travel to get together. Airfares go up. Gas goes up. It's almost a conspiracy against unity.
We have three sons and five grandchildren. It's been many years since we all got together for Christmas. My wife and I quit planning on our children coming for holidays because it seemed to be mission impossible.
That's why we didn't plan on having the gang today.
Now for our little miracle.
Two days ago, all of our sons and their families called to say they were coming our way for Christmas!
It's truly a Merry Christmas in the Stancliff household today!
I wish a very Merry Christmas to my followers, and new readers of this blog!
Time for me to walk on down the road...
