Missing You



For those over the miles and my son over the ocean - mom took an image as she prepares the table for Christmas Eve breakfast.

In my heart you will be among us.
I send you my love. May you be Happy, Healthy, Safe and at Peace....


As this year draws to its end,
We give thanks for the gifts it brought
And how they became inlaid within
Where neither time nor tide can touch them.

We bless the year for all we learned
For all we loved and lost
And for the quiet way it brought us
Nearer to our invisible destination

John O'Donohue - in part from "At The End Of the Year"

I know it is very hard to have a son away at this time. I pray he is safe and comes back home soon.
Just wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas
Love
Maggie

sending you love and light and a hug...knowing your son appreciates the table you set and encouraging him to sit with you in his heart from afar.

You are dear.
