Letter from the Editor: A season for reflection
By: Sarah Tucker
Well, believe it or not, the year is quickly coming to a close and we will soon put 2018 in the history books. So much change happened in my life this year but I am so thankful for the constant of monthly putting together this little magazine and in return, hearing so many amazing stories from our readers.
This was our first full camping season with the Cool Tears Teardrop and wow, did we ever make some great memories! Texas over spring break was our first long adventure and we all came away from that trip with new friends and a greater appreciation for non-windy campsites. HA! Our summer travels took us all over the state of Missouri as we learned how to quickly set up and tear down and also what is essential to teardrop camping. By far, we all enjoyed camping on Taneycomo Lake the most as it afforded us the opportunity to fish, swim, kayak and even get in some great shopping in Branson.
While all the trips were great, I always came home with the hope that the memories we made while camping are some that will last a lifetime for my girls. The conversations we had around the campfires would range from silly to deep theological to story telling from our own childhoods. These are the times that I hope stay imprinted on my girls minds as they venture into adulthood.
As we head into this Christmas season, may we take a few moments to give thanks for that tiny baby born so many years ago who would go on to become the Savior of the world. So from my family to yours, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
