Today is a particularly difficult day.  I want to go home today.  Like, California, mom’s hug, all the Christmas trimmings.  Right now, I miss it immeasurably.



  1. Claire-Bear! Awwww, I’m so sorry you’re having that Dorothy-in-the-Wizard-of-Oz feeling of, “There’s no place like home.” I wish it were as simple as clicking your ruby-red shoes at the heals and *poof* you were transported back to us. I am thinking about you and sending you positive vibes – I love you so much, Claire! You are missed, but I know that we will see you soon – June isn’t too far off. Hang in there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We miss you, too, Claire! We are sending you all the good Christmas vibes we can muster. You know you are here in spirit as we are always including you in everything we do. “Wish Claire was here” is a frequent conversational topic around the house. We love you.

    Claire, I’m sorry you are having a rough day, we miss you and hope things are looking up soon. I’ll bet I can make you smile if you think of balloon drawings. 🙂

  4. We all love and miss you. You are giving us gifts through every posting and even with all the hubbub you’re never very far away. I don’t think you have any idea how many times you come up in our everyday conversations. Not more than an hour ago I swear! Merry Christmas! Can you go caroling in China? Might be worth a try but I think they might frown on you whacking down a tree in your local park.
