Those of you reading me regularly, will remember that November was not an easy month for us, and so far it seems December is continuing the trend. After getting some very troubling news last Sunday, Lovely Husband and I decided that a trip back home was necessary for me. As a result this year, I will be spending Christmas with some of my family members back home in France, while being homesick for my husband and children here in Canada.
As a grown up, I always counted on Christmas to make me feel like a child again. Being away from home, I started a few Christmas family traditions of my own and I was looking forward to continue this year as usual. We always have a giant Christmas’ eve sleepover with our friends and their children and I had just begun to get ready for it. This year however there is a change in plans. For the very first time since they are born, I will not be spending Christmas with my own children and I don’t know how brave I will be about it all.
So it is with a heavy heart I am going, hoping against all hope that everything will turn out for the best. I plan on taking my camera and my laptop with me as writing and taking pictures is very therapeutic. I do not know how it will all turn out yet I feel I have to go. Can I ask you to keep us in your thoughts?
