Agreed, this is so hard. I lost my beautiful mom on Nov. 17th of 2010. Christmas will never be the same for me. My Mom knew I was such a Christmas lover and I know she would want me to go on and she would want me to remember her and my dad, but not to be so sad. She once told me that if something were to happen to her, she didn't want me to be sad. Easier said than done, but I will forge on with my love for Christmas and always always keep the memories of Mom and Dad with me and what they taught me about love.

“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.”
