ABC Wednesday - C is for... Week of 8-4-09

C is of course for Christmas.

Christmas for my mom was always a big deal. She went all out. I don't know where the money came from but she didn't know the meaning of budget at Christmastime. Everyone in the entire family received multiple gifts from her.

Mom has been gone since 1991, and Christmas has never been the same. She got so much joy out of giving. She would wrap each gift differently. No two were alike. She spent many days wrapping to make certain they were all different.

Whenever the family get together now one of the memories that is always talked about is my mom and Christmas. I think it is a pretty good legacy to leave behind.

  1. My mum is no longer with us and it is at Christmas I think of her too. She too was a very generous and kind person. Now the family get together at our house and the legacy lives on.
