~“Christmas without Mama”~

Published: Friday, January 4, 2013 at 10:09 AM.

My brothers and I continue to work to be a testament to our parents.

There is probably not anything I can think of much worse than disappointing my parents. 

So on this first Christmas without Mama, we sure wouldn’t have disappointed them.

On the drive back from our get together, my son and I were sitting in the backseat of the car together.  Out of the blue, my son asked, “You know what I miss?”  Puzzled by his question, I simply said, “No, what?”

My son responded, “Grandma’s random bags of stuff.”

We had not been talking about her, so it surprised me.

It got to me, and I started laughing.  I knew exactly what he meant.  Mama was the absolute best when it came to stuffing stockings (or bags).
