When you live this far apart from your loved ones, time together is never long enough, even when some days together it feels like it. I would like another couple of weeks together just to RELAX, without plans, without parties, without anything but time to sit together, talk more deeply about our lives, get to know my niece and nephews better, give my children more time with their grandma, their uncle, their aunt, their cousins. Time to do all the family things together that we so rarely get to do with each other: play games, go shopping, eat meals, hang out on the deck, watch movies, smile, joke, talk, laugh and laugh some more. I really hope that we can make it happen sooner the next time. Not seeing my family for years at a time is HARD.
