it's gonna be Christmas soon!

Today is the 15th of October. We’re halfway through the month and Christmastime is just around the corner. Christmas season is something I so look forward to every single year. I just love the merry feeling it gives me when I think of it.

But this time is different. As I countdown through the days before Christmas, I somehow feel a bit of sadness knowing that forty-nine days after the merry day, I shall be leaving behind my family and friends for a new life that awaits miles and miles away from home. And just writing about it brings me to tears already. It is our choice though… something that husband and I have planned for nearly two years ago.

After indulging myself with the sad thought, the excitement begins to surface. Yes, we will finally live our lives in a place we have always dreamt of, and it is going to be exciting! It may not always be easy, but it will be fun! It may be full of uncertainties, but we will surely learn new things. And as we go through everything that may be new to us, it would be comforting to know that we have each other and by God’s grace we would be A-OK!

Now I am happy again! Am I crazy? Nah! Just thrilled!

Jacqueline, I understand. I think you will like it in Australia... :-)

I love Christmas! It's my favorite time of year! Where are you moving to? I missed something. I'm sure everything will be wonderful!

Hi Agnes. My friend who's now staying there says the same thing. :) Husband and I are really excited to be there. By then maybe, I'd be more active blogging about my first-time experiences in Australia

Hi Heather. I think you are recovering fast from the surgery and that is very good. We both love Christmas. It's the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it? Husband and I are moving to Australia next year for good. But we can always visit our families and friends back here in the Philippines, if our resources would permit. :) We pray that things will be for the best.
