My Mom

This reminds me of my mom of Christmas Past... She always wanted christmas to be so perfect for all of us. I love my mom! She is a wonderful mom all she really wants for christmas is to have all her Family in one place for christmas. Is that really so much to ask? My wish for my mom is that once again in the next couple years we will all be under one roof for christmas. So to my Grandparents, My Brother, My Aunts and all my cousins. Wish you were here this year.
