Home for Christmas

     LOTV stamps' challenge topic for August is Christmas. Problem is that I don't have a LOTV Christmas stamp. I decided not to let that deter my challenge entry. I chose the "Toot, Toot" stamp.

     I remember every Christmas as a little girl, standing by the window waiting for my sister and brothers to get home for Christmas. They are all considerably older than me and had their own homes. Now I stand at the window waiting for my children to come home for Christmas. Seems I am always waiting for someone . . . Christmas is so much more, when everyone is "home".
