Holiday Memorey.......

Happy Sunday everyone...
All has been pretty calm around here, kind of scary~ hahahaha. I have to work Thanksgiving day but after work I will hea
d over to my Mom's for so FABULOUS food, her cooking is the best ever, but I bet we can all say that about our Mom's cooking, every year we have to take our own container over if we want to bring home left overs so I am saving my cottage cheese containers and that kind of stuff, I bought a pie this morning for dessert and washed the container it came in and I said " Look Joey, this is for the left overs at Momma's" and it brought back a time when he came into mom's house carrying a brown paper bag from the store full of plastic containers, we laughed so much and he was proud of himself, we teased him about saving for a year and when his children had to clean out his house they found so many plastic containers, some of them where Mom's from the years before she started making us bring our own, she said she never got her containers back, I miss my brother something terribly, I guess cause the holidays are fast approaching us and his leaving is still so raw but it is better I promise you. This year I will decorate for CHRISTmas, I didnt last year and I promised my brother I would this year, he loved coming to my home and seeing what new decoration I bought, so I will continue that and he enjoyed seeing the house all lite up with the lights and would tease me about how high my light
bill would be and I would joke back about how he needed a tax right off for the needy that he could donate to my light bill. I love the fact I can now have memories of him and not cry if anything I can smile and say " Remember Joey ? "

I was not going to decorate this year but my son Chris really fussed at me and told me to get on with living. I guess he is right.. BUT today I was getting a few things ready and just broke down crying when I found some little Christmas tree ornies that belonged to Mom and Dad... Oh Annette, how hard this is! Praying for you my friend as we go into the holiday season.....

I understand, I've been so out of the mood since my mom has gone into the nursing home that I felt we were broken. And then I thought, I'm cheating my kids and myself by not making "our" own memories. My mom doesn't know it's Christmas, and for me I know she's my mom everyday, not just on holidays. I've promised her a very long time ago, I would always be close to Jesus, and as it turns out He's very close to me, how can I not celebrate His Birthday.

I am never in the mood to decorate.
We have NO family here and it seems pointless.
