I haven't had much time to post . My works lately have been all about creating my Christmas gifts and I didn't want to give away all my secrets.
I must admit I'm not much of a baker. Not that I'm sure I couldn't do it but the only flour I have in my cupboards is for paper mache. Sad I know. I am grateful everyday, that my mom lives a few floors above me. She cooks dinner for me almost everyday. I get to visit and we shop for groceries together. She says she eats better when she cooks for someone and hey I can't complain.She has someone to visit her everyday and I'm grateful for the time I have with her. My dad died over 25 years ago but Christmas is still especially difficult for her.
At 82 she finds her sisters, friends and family passing on and each year she grieves. At Christmas she still tries to capture the very special Christmas' we had. I wish I could do more to capture those things in our Christmas Present. This year she baked and I decorated. We listened to our favourite Christmas tunes, argued about the best way to decorate and she supervised each sprinkle or daub of icing.
I'll share these moments that are very special to me and wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
Try to make a little of Christmas Past present in your Christmas this year!
