Today will be the last time in 2012 we will spend all day as a family. The OH returns to work tomorrow, and his next Rest Day is New Years Day.
Being a Police Officer is definitely a lifestyle choice and is a job like no other.
Spending the day snuggled on the sofa watching Disney DVDs and family classics, it's a sobering reminder that there are a number of families who won't get chance to do that this year. Not because their loved ones are on duty, but because they sadly died in service this year.
There will be one less stocking to hang and one less place to set at the dinner table.
Christmas is a time to spend with your nearest and dearest, a time to make lasting memories. Instead this year it will be a time to reflect on Christmas past.
We are never guaranteed tomorrow. Live
for today and always tell your loved ones how special they are.
Don't take each other for granted, you never know if you will get the opportunity to tell them again.
