Christmas Eve


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.

Oh, Kari, I'm so sorry that you're away from your family at a time when you need them. I hope your mom will feel better tomorrow, and you can speak.
Happy Holidays, the five of you together!

Your pictures are just beautiful! It looks like a wonderful day.
I can understand the part about missing family at Christmas, especially your Dad. I miss my Mom during the holidays too. I'm praying for you and the rest of your family.
