Sharon, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Losing a mom is a hard thing. I lost my mom to cancer Dec 12, 28 years ago. In the end we did celebrate Christmas because that is what she would have wanted as she loved Christmas. She even made sure we got our presents early and we opened them with her before she passed.
Take time to remember her as she was before the disease took away the kind loving personality that she had.

Wanted to let everyone know that I will probably not be around much until after the new year. My mother died last night at 9:30 and have been keeping close tabs on my father since he is 84. Please keep me and my family in your prayers. I have several family members that live out of state and on both coast. So there is going to be some travel for them to get here. Plz let me know when the next challenge is so I can come back and get involved. It is probably too late to join the December one though.
Mom told me two hours before she died that she wanted me to get off my butt and start losing weight and get to a health. She said that she wants me to have a long life and to hug my son for her. I think she knew then that she was dying. My husband told me that she meant after the holidays. I told him I don't think so. Thanks everyone for the nice thought and prayers. And those that have visited my spark page and left nice comments and goodies. I really appreciate it. Probably after the holiday to send out thank you goodies to those that have left comments.
My 12 year old son told me today that he feels like the kid in Grandma got ran over by a reindeer. Where the kid says should we open our gifts or send them back. Everyone says send them back. He said that he doesn't feel like Christmas this year. He was very close to his grandmother. Even though we could not go over there much because in the later years she had turned mean with the dementia that she had. Once when we were over there she hit Robert and pulled his hair. Before the decease she was so kind and caring. I know she is in a better place where there is no pain and is having a good time with her mom and dad and family that had passed before her.
Thanks again for your friendship for the last two years. I know I can do this and make her proud. I also know she is looking down on me right now and is being my Guardian Angel.
Thanks again for your prayers,
Sharon CST Clarksville Arkansas
