Christmas Eve

I know Thanksgiving is long over, but I am thankful on this Christmas Eve.  Paul and I got to thinking about where we were last Christmas Eve, and it wasn't exactly a good place.  There were a lot of tears last year at Christmas and none of them happy ones.  We really struggled through the holidays without Jae home last year.  Knowing our son was a 1/2 a world away and no real indication of when he was coming home was really, really, really hard.

Fast forward a year and there are still lots of tears, but happy ones.  I find myself constantly tearing up and kissing Jae's cheeks so thankful to have him home and part of our family.  What a difference a year makes.  Paul and I have always had a wonderful, strong, happy marriage, but these past few months have been better than all the rest. 

Merry Christmas Jae Miles Herzog.  We love you.  Welcome home.
