Son Max spent a bundle traveling from Seoul to California for Christmas. Apart from visiting with friends and relatives Max was especially anxious to see Grace and experience Christmas with her.

Nice picture but poor composition on my part. Must have been one too many cups of holiday cheer. Duh!

Max and Grace are close. They can relate. Christmas day they romped through the house playing hide and go seek. They shot at each other with toy guns. It was fun to watch.

There's hardly a day that goes by that Grace doesn't saddle up to the map of the world and point out Seoul Korea on it. "There's where Uncle Max lives", she says. Not bad for a five year old kid.

Max is most content to live away from his family and be in South Korea. He was recently hired to teach at the University. That was good news. Professor Maxwell has a ring to it. There's another job with a Seoul corporation that he has teaching English as a second language. But Max's real anchor to Korea is the love of his life. Max's main squeeze - Una is a keeper.

Though it's apparent that we've gained another member to our family there's no doubt that we've lost a son to the other side of the world.

We'll just have to cherish Max's visits to America even more than we already do and make the most of them . . . and take time ourselves to jet off to that land far, far away . . .

We just enjoyed a visit from some of my family in Hungary, it is nice to enjoy some time being together rather than just talking over the phone or by letters.

It must be hard when a child moves so far away, I know I would miss my daughter if she moved away when she is older but as long as they are happy that is what is important.

Thank you for the comment you left on my last HNT post. Although I dont write as much as I should or could on the blog, it really touched me that you can see there is more to me than just those pictures each week.

You truly are a special person :)
