Nov 29 - Last Day Together - Thankful

Today is the last day my family will all be together for a very long time. My daughter deploys next week and we won't see her again until sometime late next year.  This will be the first Christmas that she won't be here. It will be one long hard year without her.  I know we will all make it but she will have limited communication capability and there will be months where we don't hear from her at all. We have been working hard to not think about her departure and so today, we will do all her favorite things.  We will have all her favorite foods.  We will spend time together laughing and enjoying each other's company.  We will be thankful that we got to spend this last holiday together and we will look forward to the next time we are all together again.
Where we love is home, 
Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
