The Better Way To Spend A Week In Winter
Still, that makes it difficult when there are family times like, oh, Christmas. Since it was important for the family in this home to spend our first Christmas just being together, that meant no trip to see the family I’ve known for my 32 years on earth.
This parting was eased because my parents, Phil and Nancy Engel, came down for a visit last week. Instead of being holed up inside a house while a winter storm raged outside, the week before Christmas was spent lounging around my back porch, having coffee, that sorta stuff.
I hope you’re as fortunate as I am to have such great parents who go out of their way to be accommodating. They’ve helped me realize my biggest resolution for 08 should be to be a little more like my folks.
