This year is different!! My son is home - need I say anything more!
With the recent event in Connecticut, the fact that my son is home takes on a whole bigger meaning because there are 20 families that won't have their sons or daughters home for Christmas. My heart breaks for them and all I can do is pray that God will be with them during this time.
My best Christmas present this year is that I can hug a sailor!!
Last night we put up our Christmas tree. I know, we are a bit late doing that but we wanted to wait until Nathan came home to do. I love putting up the tree and bringing out the ornaments. The ornaments are like going through an old family album. There are ornaments that I bought on many a family vacation, handmade ornaments made in various Sunday School or Grade School classes, ornaments given as a gift from a friend, and special ones from my Mom or made by my mother-in-law. Oh how I love this season!!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
