Dec 20th – 2017
When we made the choice to sell out and go RVing full time, I knew there would be some difficult times when I would miss the house and home. Today is one of those days. The closer we get to Christmas, the more I am thinking about family, and wondering what Christmas Day will be like. To be honest, I am home sick, and we have only been gone a few weeks.
It was hard for me to sleep last night. For the first time in my life, I have no tree to decorate, and there will be no kids, grand kids or parents coming over for dinner. Of course I am well aware of the true meaning behind the season, and I am so grateful for the many things we have.
This first holiday away from family is still going to be challenging none the less. However, we will make the best of it 🙂 All of this has brought a few things into perspective for me. I know so many people who do not have the means to have a big Christmas dinner, or gifts for their kids under the tree. Although Doug and I have each other, I can now understand how lonely some people must feel.
My FB page has been flooded with so many Christmas wishes and beautiful messages. That is such a good feeling, and very much appreciated. No matter where you are, or who you are with, God is good and there are blessings around us if we take the time to look. With that said, we sincerely wish all of you a very beautiful Christmas! Stay safe and warm.
Cheers! Sherry, Doug, Santana, and Chicago.
