I survived Christmas. It was a tough one. Not only was it the first one
without my Mom which made it tearful, but other things happened that
made the day especially tough for me. My Aunt Susan, my Mom's sister
fell and broke her leg last year on the same day my Mom died. My Aunt
has been bed ridden ever since. She is now becoming mentally
confused and I fear that I will be losing her soon too. I was so sad that
we could not have a long chat together. We have always been so close.
My Mom is wearing a sari in this picture. It was a gift to her from one of my
Daddy's business associates who brought it to her from India. I wonder
what Mom did with it? I have yet to come across it.
Monday the 29th would have been Mom's birthday. I'll have to toughen up for
that day too. But life goes on, and I will too.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
