Well, today (Dec 23rd) would of been my Moms 77th birthday! she passed away 11 yrs ago. I'm trying to keep myself busy today, my friends coming over for dinner tonight. Just hard to believe it's been 11 yrs! just wish we could of had more years with her. When this time of the year comes I always remember the things she did at Christmas like all of us baking cookies, making a big dinner for the family, I really miss those days, I sure hope my girls will remember the traditions that we do at Christmas. I know alot of you are missing someone this time of the year, it does get easier. but theres always a sad feeling that i feel around Christmas. So in honor of my mom i will light a candle and say a prayer for everyone that might be having this same feeling.
