Christmas did come and it did go, and I am relieved. My first Christmas in my whole entire life without my Mom. It was hard and sad and heartbreaking. I don't know what to do without Mom. I don't mean I don't know how to conduct my life, I just mean I don't know how to fill the role of oldest daughter, the position I hold in my family, how to live alone without Mom's love, kisses & hugs, and her support. In time those things will unfold. I'm glad things like these happen slowly.
Love and blessing to my little family, my bigger family, and my friends. I am one lucky girl. I know I am. Thanks to God for the peace, faith, and good direction.
