Colorado - 5 days left

 There are many things I've learned since coming here, the first of which is that I know next to nothing about most things.  Second, patience is underrated.  Way underrated.  If something hurts - pray, listen, and wait. Its a subtle truth so easily overlooked. Well, its almost over - and at the end of the tunnel is Christmas. I like Christmas.  I like the warm feelings of fire and snow, carbs and candy.  I'm not ashamed.  I love that we still celebrate, though not always with it in mind, the entering of God into our world.  Every year.  So this Christmas, I too return to the place of my birth - except I'm not in labor and we're taking my Honda instead of a donkey.
