Dear Mom (2)

Dear Mom,

Christmas was this past weekend, and I’m so thankful that you were up to the celebration.
I know you pushed yourself more than you probably should have, for our sake, but it was still nice to be able to enjoy one more family holiday with all of us there.

Leading up to the day of was interesting – I had drawn your name in the family gift exchange and at first I was so excited but then it sank in…what Christmas gift do you get a woman who is dying?

In the end I decided to ignore your diagnosis and get you a gift that I would have gotten you if I didn’t know. So, I ended up getting you a really soft lovely blanket scarf, a beautiful set of colored pencils and a beautiful coloring book as well as a couple of treats.

It’s funny that a good weekend gives me little to write about.
