Thankful for...Vacations.

Saturday, November 12, 2011
As I sit here in warm, sunny Captiva, Florida, I can't help but to be thankful to be enjoying a family getaway.

Vacations give us a break from the everyday ordinary. They give us a chance to relax and recharge. This week I'll be re-connecting with my family without the distractions of work, school, homework, laundry, after-school activities, etc. And, most importantly, we'll be creating memories that will long be discussed at the dinner table.

I am thankful that we have the financial means to go on vacation. In a financial climate where many families are forced to scale back or often eliminate family vacations, I feel pretty darn lucky that we are able to escape reality for a week.

So, for the next week, I'll be kicking back poolside and gulf-side with a cold drink in my hand and my family not far my side. And as I do so, I'll acknowledge my good fortune and hope that those less fortunate will, one day, be so lucky.
