How is your Christmas shopping going?

Have not started, having to catch up on bills and it's sad cause it's our first Christmas since my mom passed and I know it wont be very merry at all. Am I the only one feeling it?

  • Sweetie you celebrate life. Your mom would want that for you and your family. Starting doing some traditions that she left you with in her honor. Perhaps a cooking recipe.

    Visit her grave site and leave her a small little Christmas tree or angel to remember her by. You know some that doesn't cost but a buck or visit the Goodwill to find something. Have your kids go with you to give her this gift. Leaving flowers would help too.

    I lost mom this year.  You have my condolences.
