|Michaela's First Christmas Ornament|
on our tree, 2013
My oldest son and my granddaughters live a few hours away, and they also have their mother's family close by. My girls are both talking about moving to another state (realistic for only one at the present time). I love my adult children, and generally find them to be more interesting and exciting now than they were as children, but this moving on business, well I can't say I'm terribly in favor of all that.
Michaela, if you are out there somewhere, I am sad for all the Christmases we have spent apart. I am sad for all the little girl growing up presents I was not able to give to you, for all the love and excitement we missed sharing. It would be the greatest Christmas gift in the world to me if I could see you again, hold you in my arms, give you even the tiniest fraction of the love I have been holding for you all these years. Do you have children? I would love to know them, love to have them here to share the holidays with our family. I love you. I love what is yours.
To everyone else who has read this blog, who has held Michaela in their hearts whether they knew her or never met her, thank you, and I wish you a warm and loving holiday season and a new year filled with all good things.
And thank you. <3 p="">
