As I sit pondering last Christmas and how I loved being with my children on Christmas morning… seeing their eyes light
up as they pulled things out of their stockings. Watching as one daughter lined things up in an organized manner while the other simply relished in the moment, I thank God for this Christmas. Even though I’m 6,000 miles away from my sweet daughters (and my fiancé), I feel blessed. This year I don’t have to tell my daughters good-bye as they leave to enjoy their time with their dad. They don’t have to leave me or my house on Christmas Day. And while that is a bit sad, it is also somehow comforting and indeed a blessing.

A little over three weeks ago, I made a HUGE change in my life. I moved from Tennessee to American Samoa.
I hope to somehow find time to write about my adventures here. I may start a separate blog just about my time here in American Samoa. Please let me know what you think.

I’m not a giveaway queen, but I do enjoy entering giveaways from time to time. I’m not sure if it’s considered a hobby, obsession, or addiction.
