Jack and Deb, I’m glad to hear that time with Deb’s family is still the best part of your Christmas tradition. But the bad, the good, the intolerable, unloving, joyous, distasteful, and the sweet moments are all integral to life. The key is how we allow those moments to affect us, the lessons we carry away, and the love we share.
