Some Christmas’s ago My mother passed on
Since them my favorite holiday of the year
has changed some. I am still happy and enjoy
the taste and smell and colors of Christmas
but the texture has changed.
Now I feel the harsh reality of the loss of my mother.
Now I feel the empty space she has left behind her.
I feel the cold void that her personality and attitude
left after her passing. Nothing can replace that.
I love christmas regardless but I miss my mother
terribly. Today as I bask on my memories I hurt and
find solace in the many memories and special
moments. She was not perfect…. She was just Mom.
Merry Christmas Feliz Navidad.
