♫ ♪ Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree We are still waiting.... ♪ ♫

That's right, still waiting. And oh it has been so hard. It was a month since the medical exams. My Boricua's File is already at the desk of the officer in charge to make a decision on the retirement claim. There are so many benefits at risk, educational, financial and health to name a few.

There is not much I can do but I can do one thing, PRAY, and oh we have been praying. There are moments when I believe I don't have any strength to keep going but when I see my kids sleeping at night... oh that moves me, they irradiate a peace like no other, an eternal peace and suddenly I feel I can do anything, I feel God's love for Us.

This year God showed us how amazing his power is, how inmense his mercy is. We are here!!! finally here, closer to my Familia than I ever thought. We celebrated our FIRST Thanksgiving together and we are looking forward to celebrate Christmas with them for the first time in 13 YEARS, wow!!!! I get goosebumbs just to write about this.

I am very thankful for all your prayers, good wishes, good vibes. Thank You. And while we wait I try to keep our home cozy in this season, The Most Wonderful Time of The Year. Best wishes for all of you.
