Hey my friends!
I have not been looking forward to this day for a long while now.
You see, my sweet mom passed away a year ago today.
I thought I would stay in bed, and probably cry a lot.
But something changed in my heart.
I decided NOT to make this a sad day, but a happy one
"CELEBRATE" her life.
I finished my "gift-wrapping" area and relished in my Christmas memories of mom.
She celebrated our Savior's birth, like no one else.
Her house was like a Christmas village setting from a magazine.
And her kitchen smelled of an apple-cider gingerbread land.
But you know what, she HATED wrapping gifts!
I love it, she didn't.
Several years I would help her with the wrapping.
This Christmas season is not the same.
Our hearts ache for "Grammy".
However, we remember these words from Dr. Seuss:
"Don't cry because it's over,
Smile because it happened."
This angel was given to me from my mom on her last Christmas.
It was handmade by her dear friend.
Maybe you are struggling with the loss of someone very close to your heart.
I just encourage you to get up, keep going, and do something in their honor.
Listen to the song "How you live", on my play list.
It's not who you knew, it's not what you did, it's how you live :)
Today I wrapped gifts for my mom.
I hope you are wrapping gifts and celebrating the Season with your family.
I really appreciate you stopping in for a visit.
