One day as I sat there holding my mother's hand, I asked her if there was anything that could be done to make her feel better. She said, "I want god to take away this cancer and instead give me something that would let me die with dignity." I tried but didn't really know how to comfort her.

Though there's a part of me -- of all of us, I'm sure -- that misses the little children in their matching outfits sent by my mother-in-law each year at Christmas, I very much enjoy the adults that my kids and my nieces and nephews have grown up to become.

The ball has dropped, the champagne has popped and the partygoers have kissed. It's a new year. Now, it's time to think about your travel calendar.
