Dear Mom

Mothers Day

Thank you for being the best Mom in the whole world. For always scratching my back and telling me stories when I couldn’t fall asleep. For teaching me good manners & what is right & wrong. Thank you for always being the Mom who drove all the kids to the school dances & let us sing at the top of our lungs like we were Trisha Yearwood. And thank you for continuing to teach me the larger lessons in life.

I love you,

But what is it about Christmas that brings out so many different emotions? Is it the gifts under the tree, or the pressure to put gifts under the tree? Perhaps it is the lights in the windows that take you back to your first Christmas tree lighting? Maybe for you, it is the smell of a home cooked meal that reminds you there’s no place like Mom’s kitchen.  Or the picturesque view of a snowman resting in your front yard that, when you were a child, seemed worthy of being magically brought to life. The holidays are happy, the holidays are sad. A funny thing happened the other day that gave me a clue as to why I, like many others, feel happy:sad during the holidays.
