This is going to be a particularly difficult christmas this year. My husband's mother is gravely ill. She is in her final stages of Altzimers and the doctors gave her 2 weeks to live (give or take). It has been 23 days. That is her in the chair last christmas. The two gentlemen behind her will be what I will concentrate on this and every holiday. I'm happy at christmas as long as I have family, a plate full of food, a little music playing in the background and a few gifts under the tree for my son.

I am so sorry, yes this one is going to very hard for us also it is the first Christmas since little boy was killed. Quite frankly I do not know how to cope with this horrible grief sometimes.

By looking around me and counting my blessings!!

And prayers to Africhef and GOMK!! We are with you guys!!
