Merry Christmas Mom

We visited Mom today...

She always did her best for us on Christmas. Sometimes it wasn't easy, but she gave it her all. I remember as a small kid she had some old glass ornaments and as I got older she used gold and red. The stuff we used reminded me of her, and how she would mark the ornaments for the kids with their name and the year.

Merry Christmas Mom, we love you.

I really wish I could have been there. The only reason this wasn't bothering me was because I was trying not to think about it. This is the 1st year I didn't come back at any time for Christmas and I think it was for more reasons than just the store opening now. There would have been no way around it but I think I will be able to make it through easier if I am still down here. I have enough memories flooding back I don't really want to be right there where it all used to happen b/c I don't know if I could have really handled it.

Not that I don't want to be with family b/c of all years this is one I wish I was home. It's a catch 22. Ugh. Oh well. At least we have Kaytlin to lift my spirits.
