Christmas Memories With Mom
I came across a wonderful blog that I urge everyone to visit: Things I Want To Tell My Mother. The author is hosting a writing contest (how fun!) – Christmas With Mom. In 100 words or less, write about a special Christmas memory with your Mother or Grandmother. Here is mine…
Tradition. Laughter. Love.
The sound of ripping wrapping paper.
The smell of the oranges we always got in our stockings.
The delicate glow of the miniature white candles on her golden angels centerpiece.
The bright colored lights on the tree.
The harmony in her voice of the carols she sang.
The apron she wore.
The tablecloth under the china.
The scent of her perfume.
The joy in her smile.
The touch of her soft hands.
The goodnight kiss as she tucked tired eyes into bed.
Mom, I will forever hold these memories, as I can no longer hold your hand.
My Mother passed away from Leukemia on December 10, 2006.
