Christmas Vacay

Multiple Choice - which of these do you not want to happen to you when you travel a few hundred miles to visit family?

A. Come down with a relentless, high fever for the entire duration of the vacation that causes delirium and confines you to the couch. Oh, and it doesn't respond to Tylonel.

B. On the night of your arrival, have the entire family find out that one of the family members has a serious terminal illness.

C. On your second day there, sudden, unexpected death strikes down a distant young relative living just two doors down.

D. All of the above.

For me, the answer was D. It was a very bizarre trip, but oddly, it was still enjoyable. I apologized to them for getting sick, and they apologized to us for all the bad timing of events. It was a bit of a relief to get home, and of course, that is when the fever finally went away. God is sovereign and His will is perfect. Even when it doesn't make any sense. Hopefully, our next visit will be slightly less eventful.
