    Hi there. I am sorry you are haveing a tough time this morning. 15 months is a very long time and your are probably right about the holidays. Its tough not seeing family around the holidays. So have a good cry and then get back to quilting.

    I totally understand. I have a brother in Nebraska, and haven't seen him for years.

    I am sorry you are missing them. I know what you mean. My mom and sister (and her family) all live 3,000 miles away. I haven't got out there since Jan of 2009.

    Sometimes calls and emails just don't cut it.

    {{{{{HUGS}}}}} I understand what you're feeling. When I first moved away from my family when I was 21 it was very difficult not spending the all holidays with them. It does get easier. Just keep in contact - decorate as normal, bake as normal (if necessary - ship baked goods out :D ) it'll be greatly appreciated!!! I'm sure! :D

    I feel your pain ! All of my family live too far away to come for the Holidays . They are so busy, so I have decided to have Christmas when everyone has more time in January or February. Christmas is in your heart and doesn't have to be on a certain day.
