It is hard to believe that it is a month since I last updated my blog, "Parents on the Move!" The reason for this break is that my husband I have been on the move with a re-entry for four months to the UK. You may recall that we live part of the year in the United States and part of the year in the United Kingdom, though how much of the year is spent in each country varies. We also visit my husband's daughter, son in law and grandchild in Italy each year. Whereever we are, it does feel like home.
It was a challenge to leave Florida this year; leaving family and friends, our church, and great weather. We both enjoy the American way of life, but as soon as we landed on UK soil; we wondered how we will be able to leave it at the end of our time here. I was so pleased to be met at the airport by my daughter and have already had one lovely day with her in her new home in London.
As Christmas approaches, we genuinely look forward to having adult children and grandchildren visit; and we look forward to visiting them in their homes. We have six children between us, all truely a joy. We aren't pretending to be a blended family but we are also real about valuing each member of this greatly extended family and so grateful for time together.
It is my prayer that you and your family have a blessed time together (even if it is just a skype moment!), whever in the world you are for the holiday!
