Merry Christmas

Three stockings hang over our fireplace...a silent reminder of who isn't here this Christmas. Yes, it makes me sad. Yes, it makes my heart ache. Yet I can't bring myself to take it down. He is a part of our family, and until he's home, his presents will wait under the tree and the stocking will remain. How we long for the day when our family will be together. Merry Christmas to you and your families. May our Lord bless each of you this Christmas and in the year to come.


  1. He will be home soon!! I'm feeling sad too, thinking about our sweet baby girl - but the next two weeks will be soon gone, and this waiting will be in the past.

    Have a very merry Christmas.....our best gifts are just coming a little later!


  2. I have his picture in my carry on. I will not leave ET without giving him a Christmas squeeze and letting him know you are coming for him so soon!!

  3. This post and pic bring me to tears. I told him his mommy and daddy are coming. He's got his bags (and baby bjorn) packed. Merry Christmas, friend!!
