I've read about this contest on several blogger friends I follow who have entered: Linda, Kim, Claudia. I wanted to write something, but seemed a bit pointless as I could only remember one Christmas. But then since my blog is about writing to my mom, it seemed like a no brainer.
So in 100 words or less, you're to write your Christmas memory with your mom. Things I Want To Tell My Mother blog is holding the contest.
Here are my 89 words:
Since you passed away shortly after my 12th birthday, I know it wasn’t that Christmas that I remember, since you were in the hospital. The last Christmas I remember was the year I worried if Santa Claus was real. When I opened the door into the living room, lights sparkled on the presents under the tree. I smiled with relief. I glanced over at you on the couch and saw relief on your face too. I wish I had more memories of Christmas with you.
