Christmas story #10 God’s suprises

Mom and me 2011.jpg12 days 11

I haven’t been able to be around my mom at Christmas for years now. She lived 8 hours away in a real foggy snowy and cold place, it was just not possible to go there for Christmas.

I didn’t put this in my books but many years ago in 1989 I moved away so my ‘ex” could have a fighting chance of over coming substance abuse. He was not succesful but we did this to help him and well, years and years and years of family time were lost as a result. I remember she cried when we moved away.

It’s just such a blessing to get to see her, have her homemade goodies and share the Joy of Christmas with the person who taught me to love Christmas from the time I was young. A couple of years ago I thought “I’ll probably never get to see Mom at Christmas again” And wow here she is. In the same town!

You just never know.

Merry Christmas Mom, I love you  Laura Grace, Author “Grace to the Rescue”
