Although living overseas can bring some holiday blues, it can be blessed with some good cheer as well.
Here are some of my blessings this year:
1. Skype: We were able to skype with most of my family just this past weekend. I have 4 siblings and they are all married with kids and some with grandkids even , so there are a lot of people to visit with. Skype wasn’t so nice to us, as we had trouble…but considering that we were able to see each other briefly over miles and miles of ocean, I really can’t complain. Something that was NOT available when I first moved overseas.
2. Boxes like this! LOVE my European chocolate and candy…do I really have to share it with my kids and husband?
3. Putting up the Christmas tree and looking at all the ornaments like this and this.
4. Keeping old traditions and making new traditions.
My kids are all home now for vacation. They are counting down the days on an hourly basis. I love my time with them watching Christmas movies, sipping hot chocolate, and watching Christmas tree lights.
I pray that your Christmas holiday is one full of joy, peace and good health.
