The house is quiet right now. The kids are watching a movie and falling in and out of sleep and can’t wait for the morning to come when they’ll get to open their presents.
We just got home after spending a couple of days soaking up the sun and sea at another of Thailand’s amazing beaches. we’re a little burnt and tired and so it’s wonderful to be back at home.
tonight though I wish I were at home with my mum, sisters and brother to spend this Christmas Eve with them. It’s our first one without Dad. My heart is a little heavy. Actually a lot heavy. I’ve been crying a lot lately these last couple of days. I’m just missing him very much right now. It’s holidays like this when families are gathering to be together that it’s a little tougher to get through.
I called home tonight hoping to speak to my mum but couldn’t. My sister told me that mum knew I was on the phone and was already in tears so I’ll try again tomorrow.
I miss him dearly but he’ll always remain in my heart.
Enjoy your Christmas Eve…..where ever you may be.
