|Happy New Year|
|My uncle's front yard|
The experience was wonderful! We went through small towns like Clewiston and Moore Haven. The average population in these cities is 2,000 people. US27 is the road less traveled because it is surrounded by agricultural fields. We saw huge fields of sugar cane and bountiful orange groves. The ride was quiet and peaceful.
During our Christmas vacation we journeyed to Archer, FL. My boys played outside all day being entertained by cows and acorns falling from the massive oak tree. It was a rare glimpse to see them not asking for their Xbox or Wii games. They enjoyed smelling the country air and using their own imagination for games to play.
The highlight was Christmas dinner prepared by my mom. She grows most of her vegetables. My boys had fun watering grandma's garden and pulling off the veggies that were ready to be harvested.
As we embrace a new year realize that sometimes the road less traveled is the exact road that God wants for you.
My first choice was not to ride on US27 but I am pleased that we did. I saw God's hand as I drove through poverty stricken communities. I don't want to rush through another year, but instead enjoy the journey and the obstacles (we had a flat tire on our road trip). As I start 2012 I have a new sense of tranquility & thankfulness.
