Smells Like Christmas!
Then I had to add the knick knacky things here and there. And we ALL know how much I love candles. Partylite makes decorating so easy. You will notice a fat girl theme of candy in each display! 🙂 yum!
All of these material things are fun to play with and manipulate. But nothing takes away the fact that my mom is not here to share it with me. As I started to decorate last night, I broke down because something wasn’t right with the tree. And I realized that hooking the tree up was something that my mom and I did each year. At this time 2 years ago, she was in the hospital and we were waiting to hear what was wrong with her. Little did we know, we would lose her 2 weeks later. So, last night…I let it all out! Jabari was here, we talked, cried, talked some more and continued to decorate. It helps when I get to deal with the emotion right then and there. I’m sure I will have many more emotions to deal with in the weeks to come. I’m so glad that I have family and friends that are good listeners.
