I just came off a business trip in Manhattan with my wife and my two precious little girls, Emma Grace and Ella. New York is quite the city. Each time we travel there I learn something new about myself. I get the “I Love New York” slogan more now then ever. It is truly a city that never sleeps. On any given day or night, you’ll find there are wall to wall people walking around. Before I knew it, we became those people.
It was a Sunday morning and I had intended for our family to walk down to Broadway and 79th Street to attend the eleven o’clock morning services at The First Baptist Church. But we were all exhausted from the packing and unpacking involved in several weeks of traveling on the road. We are truly blessed to be able to travel together on business as a family. But this was our final trip of the summer and it was taking its toll. As a result we over slept and missed the eleven o’clock service. So when we were all up and dressed I said, “Why don’t we go out for a family breakfast?” The girls were excited because in our travels I bought them each a Razor Scooter to ride. They had gotten quite good at navigating the sidewalks of New York City and they blended right in with the dozens of other children riding on their scooters.
