Merry Christmas!! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. This year, I feel extremely blessed as I have my mom here with me. The last time I get to celebrate Christmas with her was in 1998. The downfall of being so far away. :( She did come to the States several times and I went back to Indonesia several times, too in between, but it wasn't on Christmas time.
So, this year, I am so thankful to have her here with me. It means the world to me to be able to celebrate Christmas with my mom. I believe the greatest blessing of Christmas is to be able to celebrate it with people you love. I have my mom, my loving husband, and my amazing in-laws and our Christmas was awesome.
My mom cooked a bunch of delicious Indonesian food. Everybody is still talking about her cooking. Yes... it was that GOOD!! The funny thing was, the next day my husband cooked her some snow crabs and she said that was better than the Christmas dinner. And, I look at her, what?? She said, the Indonesian food is just normal for her, but the snow crabs are special. Just loved her. My husband felt like a hero with that comment.
I do miss my brothers and wish they could be here with us. But, here's to next year. Hopefully, we can be all together next Christmas. And to all of you, I wish you all the very best and may Christmas joy stay with you everyday. Hugs....
