Hi! I'm sorry I've been gone forever. Things got harder at school as the semester drew to an end, and time flew by.
But I'm back home now, with a little more time on my hands. I repeat, a little, not too much more, because I'll only be home for two weeks and there are a million things that I need to get done. At least I can say that I'm home. After the initial scare of having my flights canceled, my parents were kind enough to buy me a very expensive Christmas gift: another plane ticket so I could come home. I managed to only get here 12 hours later than expected. I am very thankful for what my parents did for me, and I am very sorry for everyone who is stuck somewhere at an airport, spending Christmas away from their family.
I just want to take the time to wish everybody a Merry Christmas. I hope everyone has a wonderful time with the people they love. We should all take the time tonight and tomorrow to be thankful for those sitting around the table with us. We don't always all get together to appreciate each other, to talk about our accomplishments, but I think now is a great time for us to appreciate each other, and to be happy that we have each other to share the holiday season with.
It's at times like these that I wish I had the best of the 2 worlds (or 3, however many there are in my life) in one room. I wish I could share our Christmas traditions with my boyfriend, my host family and a few of my friends at school (even though some of them are Jewish). I wish I could see some of the people I met in Argentina, even those I haven't talked to in a while.
Tonight, I'll be thinking about all the different people I wish I could share my meal and traditions with. I hope everyone does too.
