I've always enjoyed Christmas gatherings. As a child in Minnesota to the college drives home from Chicago with grandparents along. When we married, Martha and I alternated between Minnesota and Nebraska with my folks and Sanibel Island Florida with hers. Then, as our kids grew, we stayed home and built our own Christmas traditions. As they grew up and went off to school, we were the magnet they returned to for their school breaks. Now as two are married and one is soon to be married, it's a whole new chapter for us. We're watching them establish their holiday routines, connecting with their families and establishing their own identity as couples. I'm grateful this first Sunday after Christmas for the privilege of having a wife like Martha, three children and now a son-in-law, daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law-to-be! Full nest!
