Oh how happy I am on this holiday to have our children home in Hudson. The times when we are all together are becoming rare and fleeting. I shall savor these few days, and pledge to make life simpler while they are home … taking the time to truly enjoy the present. My childhood holiday memories are beautiful and I hope that our children will be able to say the same in their future.
Social media and phone calls will keep me close to my parents, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins. No longer in the Hudson area, most are Facebook devotees. I suspect I will be watching a video of my nephew Mateo in Charlotte receiving his first dog on Christmas morning. It will be pretty great to send and receive Christmas wishes in pajamas with coffee in hand as we welcome the morning.
