Are You Going Home for Christmas?

Are you going home for Christmas?
Have you written you'll be there?
Going home to kiss the mother
and to show her that you care?
Going home to greet the father
in a way to make him glad?
If you're not, I hope there'll never come
a time you'll wish you had.
Just sit down and write a letter-
it will make their heart strings hum
with a tune of perfect gladness
if you'll tell them that you'll come.

~Edgar Guest

I encourage you to pick up the phone or a pen right now and reach out to your momma, your dad, and your loved ones.  There's a reason people send Christmas cards this time of year.

Happy Christmastime!

  1. that is a good a poam and a good blog post. Amy

  2. You know it's funny, the older I get, the more where I live now is "home," there is no grandmother's house and my parents and inlaws have both moved around, so neither of us have the "home that we grew up in" to go home to. I think that is how it is supposed to be, and obviously, we long for our eternal home, but "home" for me seems to be where I put my head on the pillow every night.....

  3. I have to agree wholeheartedly with parents have been gone over 20 years and and now I am the mother and grandmother to come home to...

    I love Christmas !

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
