Through the years...

We all will be together - if the Lord allows.

That is my theme for Christmas this year. It has been so wonderful to be with my family. I love them so much! I forget how much I miss them until I am here with them, hours from leaving and then it hits... the tears threaten to run over... again. (Don't get me wrong, I love my husband, I love my life in VA..... but I love my family too.)

next year Jon will be here for Christmas - So, I am counting on us all being together at some point during the season.... schedules change from year to year ya know.... but at SOME point - we will all be together next year.

I am currently loading pics and video to a jump drive to send to Jon - the laughter, the insanity that only our family could understand, the loudness, its all on a video to send to my little brother - but how do ya put in a box the hugs, the smiles, the watching from the sidelines - We are tryin to do that for ya bro.... but its hard to do. We missed you!

Tomorrow we all go back to the real world... life goes on - Christmas is past and we all have new stuff to show off. I love the Christmas season... I am always sad though, to see the end of the day - because the anticipation is over. I really love this time of year... But, for now, we wait for 11 months for the season to start again. We start looking forward to changing things in the year - I will get into goals and stuff for the new year in a later post this week... but for these last few hours, I am celebrating Christmas... the life of my Savior... the joy, love and peace only He can bring... the forgiveness, grace and mercy that can only come from Him... that is the celebration for this evening...

Well, I think I have rambled enough now.... I am really just writing so Jon has something to read when he gets a break.. I will return probably on Thursday...

and how wonderful to have you here.

Time passes all too quickly - can't believe it is already time for you to go home.

Trying hard not to think about when we will see you next. Because the reality is - we do not know. Nothing is planned. Nothing on the calendar. We will have to work on that.

But for today... what a blessing to have you both here. We will miss you terribly next week. :)
Love you!
