Christmas is almost here..........


and I am looking forward to it more than any other Christmas over the past few years..........
for this special Christmas...............
my daughter is coming home...........
traveling a far way to get here..............
taking a break from her busy Navy life.......
making this holiday a time where,
for the first time in many years..........
all of my children along with my husband and I, will all be together to celebrate..........
as a complete family............
just like those Christmas times a long while back.
I am taking a break from blogging.......
to just enjoy...
family.
For all of you who visit here..........
Have yourself a very Merry Christmas!

Kathleen, yours will truly be a holiday as it should be - surrounded by loved ones. Enjoy your Christmas and being with each other. Memories are made of this.

Debbie said...

It's a little hard not to envy you this year Kathleen. You'll have yours all home and this is our first to have ours all away. I am surprised at my resilience though, and I give credit to the Lord for sustaining me and reminding me it isn't about the kids. But it is nice to have them to share it with and I'm thankful for your opportunity to really enjoy! See you when it's over!
