Mom made the holidays an exciting adventure from Thanksgiving through New Year's Day. The last time I saw my mom was Thanksgiving of 2004. So you see, the holidays are bittersweet for me. Don't get me wrong, I don't get melancholy and depressed. It's just the opposite. The very atmosphere of the holidays makes me feel like my mom is right here with me and that brings me much joy!
And so this is Christmas. I decorate, play mom's Christmas albums and celebrate as if she were here, watching me do it all. I thought I would share some of the Christmas sights in our home that make me feel so warm and wonderful. I hope you enjoy.
