Travel and Christmas

Hi all,

Everytime I travel I feel so blessed and at peace. Travelling helps me to appreciate my life and how lucky I am to be healthy, wealthy and free enough to see the world.

I am reminded again of how fortunate I am to live in one of the richest countries in the world, Australia. I am humbled by seeing how others live and how hard they work and struggle to support their children and their families. I am also humbled by the beauty I see and how happy some people are with much less freedom and material wealth than I.

I am awed by the resiliance I see in humans to overcome all the diversity their ancestors, race, religion, gender or countrymen have endured.

Travel can be a double-edged sword at times. A reminder that I must accept that all these adventures have only been made possible because my son was taken back to heaven after only a few brief moments here on earth. Life would be very different with him here.

Travel, in Asia especially, reminds you of how important family is. Whether it is seeing a family of 5 on the back of a scooter; watching a mother cling to a baby on the back of a motor bike; or hearing about the generations of families that live on each floor of their houses and support each other.

As much as all these experiences help you to appreciate your life they also remind you of what is missing. Your little future family... why do some dreams have to slip away sometimes for other dreams to shine?

Christmas is not an easy time for us. We, mothers of Angel's. Yes, we know our Angel's are supporting us from heaven and sitting on top of our Christmas trees. Although they are not in our arms; opening presents or waiting for Santa.

Even as we travel the world and make our other dreams come true we know our Christmas lights don't shine quite as brightly in the absence of our angel babies on earth.

Sending love to each of you who are missing your loved ones this Christmas.

Merry Christmas and blessings until next time,
