I've been alone for Christmas, and almost every holiday for the last 4 years now, but not this year, maybe it was chance, or just luck, perhaps fate,
but this year I was with my kids, for the past two and a half days. I really had lost the feeling and completely forgot what I have been missing. I
consider it a prayer answered. With this time came the return, a flood actually, of memories of Christmas' past. And the somewhat painful feelings
that come with thoughts of all of those that I missed. I'm not sure which is worse, being alone all of those times, or the regret for the times that
I missed. Today I wasn't alone, and that was the best gift I have EVER been given.
Sadly, tomorrow my journey will continue, I have to leave and return to life on the road, but this time is my last. By January I'm done, and back
with my family for as long as I can be....
Christmas should be more than just another day, but my experiences with past holidays alone has shown me, that when you are alone, especially away
from home, it is always just another day.
I wish you all a happy Christmas, regardless of where you are and whether you are alone or not.
NEVER take anything for granted.
