My wife and I took a retreat to see her parents in Montana for Christmas. This truly is some beautiful country and I have had plenty of time to reflect on the special moments of Christmas and relationships.
We are possibly leaving for home in Minnesota some time tomorrow, however, the road conditions may cause us to retreat back to the safety of Mom’s house. I admit, I quite like it here. I learned the valuable lesson of letting the water warm up in the shower first this morning. Wow! That Montana mountain water can be COLD!!
I retreated to the corner of the shower after moving into the stream of the shower. All my wife did was laugh uncontrollably at my shrieks!! Retreated like a scared child in the corner. It was comical. All in all, this retreat has been a good getaway to spend time with my bride’s parents. These are the moments I cherish. After all, Christmas is all about relationships.
