"HOME...It's Where Our Story Begins"

Hello Friends, Followers, Visitors and Viewers!
How many of you are yearning for home?  Do you live just across your state line or somewhere across the country?  Will it take you two hours, two days or two weeks to get home?
 Some of our service men are sending out their holiday messages to their love ones that they will not get to see during the holiday. They can't say "I'll be home for Christmas". What I'm hearing mostly from them is, "I miss you!  Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!"  Some, at least I know of a group that left Fort Lee, Va on yesterday, going away from home when we have one week before Christmas left on the calendar.  Can you imagine being in that kind of situation...far away from home or leaving home just before the holiday?

Home...if you are planning on going there, is where all of our stories started.  We can get together and reminiscence about when we were little and how things were done during the holiday seasons.  I miss those times (going home) and I'm being very honest about it.  There is no family around in the area I grew up in.  They have all died out and the cousins (including myself) have all moved to other parts of the country and we just don't get together like we did when we were young women and men.  We all have our own homes and our own children.  When our children come home, yes, this is where their stories started and they do reminiscence about what it was like during the holiday seasons.
 
Today's card reflects going home this holiday season where your story started:

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
