I always get homesick around the Holidays. I miss my parents. I miss my sister. I miss my grandma. I miss my nephews. One would think that after 9 years it would get easier, but it doesn't.
I really miss the big family gatherings and everyone being together. There isn't anything like it. Everyone shows up and enjoys being together. No one is in a hurry. The kids all play together and the adults just take it all in.
