So it's christmastime and my brother and I are away from our family again. Every year, Christmas is spent with my husband and his family and I'm happy. But my longing to be with my son, my mother, sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews and adorable Charles who is my mother's great grandchild consume me. I think of my youngest sister in France who celebrates with her husband and children and away from all of us. Christmas is joyous and festive but in reality, it is tough for those who are separated from their loved ones and I pray that their emptiness and feeling of loneliness be filled with God's love. Happy Holidays to all!!
