It's great to remember, and share the family history. Thsi is part of the next generation knowing who they are. Lovely poem.

This sounds like a sad and lonely beginning in a new land made harder by the fact it was Christmas. But thanks be to God that many sad beginnings end well and beautifully by His design!! It is good sometimes to look back and see how God brings us through difficult changes. It can be a faith builder. Saying "Farewell" to misty Ireland and family had to be hard. I like this poem very much! It says a lot in just a few stanzas.
Love your poem, V. J. has my heart - I know just how she felt. God bless you both.
It is so very difficult to say good-bye any time of the year, but must be heart-wrenching during Christmas; a time when our lives are so full of family, friends, and such.
Heart-wrenching - I'm so glad you had each other. Well done.
