For my Mom, Marie Who past away in 1993.
I have always struggled through this time of year without you, as you brought more holiday spirit into the house than I ever could. I know you can see
how much the kids have grown, and that none of them, not even me, broke the gravy boat yet. It's sitting in the cupboard waiting for Christmas
No, I still haven't managed to make the fruitcake, nor will I ever figure out the patience you had making plum pudding from scratch
I know there are many things you want me to accomplish yet in life, and I know you see that Iam working on that too.I'm sorry about the house, and
I'm sorry I didn't listen to you 20 years ago when you warned me.But as you can see, I learned from my mistakes, and I'm teaching the kids to be
better than I, and not do the same.
If you are feeling the need to watch over me, I'll be OK. Just watch over the kids for me. Especially the one I gave your favorite name to. You know
how much trouble he can get into.
I miss those little signs that let me know you are around, and I'm sorry you felt the need to stop that. Please, start again.
I'll be seeing you again in the spring, with violets.
Love you Mom..
