Today, my wife and I are on a jet flying over to Scotland, to meet some of her distant relatives.  This is something that we have both wanted to do for a while, but while our children were younger, we just did not spend the time or money to do so.  This opportunity came, when I was asked to travel to Ireland for business; so I asked my wife to take a week off from teaching, join me on my trip and go to Scotland for a few days as well.

So I am grateful for the opportunities that she and I have had to travel, together this year; meeting her extended family.  WE ARE BLESSED!
