    We put up our Christmas tree last night.

    The second time since we lost mom and it wasn't any easier. My little brother is growing up and starting to become a real part of the traditions now, she would have loved to see that.

    It's been twenty-one years

    since mom lost her battle with cancer. I can't even believe we had Christmas that year, she was on death's door and had to be carried down stairs. But she was determined to be there one last time for her girls. <3

    She Was So Funny

    I don't remember how young I was, but I couldn't have been much older than six. It was summer, and I was home looking out of the window.  (No air conditioner) My mother decided that we could have some fun.  So she grabbed a few of my balloons and went into the bathroom where...
