Missing My Girls at Christmas

These are my girls:  Paet (left) is 17 and a senior in high school, Bry (right) is my first born and now 22.  I adore these two beautiful girls!  They were my world for 12 years.  It was just me and them against the world, and we were winning!

They are still a huge part of my life even though my “world” has grown.  I love my girls and they love their Mommy.  But they are both still in Georgia.  And although I talk to them both on a regular (pretty much daily) basis, there is not a minute of the day that my heart doesn’t long for them to be with me…right HERE with me!
This longing and loneliness grows during the Christmas season.  I’m not depressed as some get during the holidays. I have the babies, and I have B, but my “world” is not complete without all of them!  There are two very large holes and I want them filled.  
So we are plotting and planning, and wishing for a Christmas miracle.  Bry’s car is in need of repair and plane tickets are sky-high (pun intended).  But maybe, just maybe, Santa will read this Mommy’s list, realize I’ve been “pretty good” all year, and grant me the one and only present that I want.  The gift of my girls with me on Christmas day!  

Miracles do happen, and I do believe!

  1. Aw. I wish I could make it happen for you! Hope your dreams come true, Christy!!

  2. This reminds me of me and my mom 🙁 She lives in TN and I miss her so much. Especially now that I’ve had my first baby girl I wish she could be here to see everything. But she is coming to visit in Jan but I wish we could move to TN. Nothing like a girls mama :))

  3. Sigh…it’s going to be SO hard being away from my daughters, especially on all those holidays you spend together. =( I may have to commiserate with you!! Hoping for a Christmas miracle for you, too!
