The undoing

It's the undoing that I hate most about the holidays. The taking down, the putting it all away, the saying goodbye...to the season, and to my mom. I really hate that she's gone. It's always the worst part of her being here: the leaving. And I had so much more to say about that, but it's just pathetically embarrassing to be carrying on that way so I deleted it all. Instead, I'll share with you just a few of those items with which I simply can't yet bear to part...and a sunset, just because.

Hugs Melissa. I'm so sorry you are missing your mom. You are so blessed to have such a special friendship with her. I hope my daughter feels the same way about me someday.

A big hug from me as you 'undo' and head back to reality.
Lovely picture of the sunset.

I haven't even started. It's so hard for me to put Christmas stuff away, saying "goodbye" to the old year, plus this cold wet weather is no fun! I'm so sorry you're missing your mom. I'm sure that makes it all the more difficult. Hugs from TX!
