Our last family Christmas....

The BZ boys with Santa 2011

I sit here reminiscing of Christmas gone past and realise it really has been quite a few years since we had a traditional family Christmas.  Things change when you have your own family and somehow you get swept onto a totally different path and Christmas traditions change.

I am learning to make my own traditions. Traditions that my children will remember and cherish for years to come.

This year will be our last Christmas all together as a family before my mother goes into a nursing home.  The thought catches my breath and fills my eyes with tears. But sadly that day is only months... if not weeks away. 

As much as it breaks my heart I know it is the best thing for her and definitely the best thing for my Dad who has done wonders to keep our mother at home up until now.
I want to cherish our last Christmas with mum at home, yet I am also dreading the day and feel kind of sad about celebrating Christmas this year.

I know we will still get to enjoy special days with her, but it will never be the same.  Nothing can ever be the same and I hate knowing that.
