A Time for Family

Christmas for me is a time for Family and Friends, letting them know how much they mean to me all year round not just at Christmas. Today I had a very special bonus. My Aunt came to meet my Mother and myself bringing with her, her Son, my Cousin and his family who now live in New Zealand where he is a ranger. I haven't seen him for so long and it was just wonderful to catch up with him and his lovely wife and daughters. The years just peeled away and it was if I had seen just yesterday. Lots of laughs and stories...
Their girls are such lovely girls and I was thrilled to see them again. Their Mum took this shot so we took it in turns as I wanted to make sure she was in the next one.

This is my Aunt, my cousin and my Mum.
It was wonderful to see photos and hear about the beautiful part of the world in which they now live. It made my day.  I am definitely saving up both money and courage (sitting on a plane) to go for a visit.
Another beautiful gift from Rose Petals from Heaven.
