Mom's Christmas Tree



My entire life I have watched my mom, in awe of her doing everything she does for everyone but herself. She never backs out on what she says she will do. She always comes through for me. Her consistency, her unconditional love, her willingness to do the right thing no matter the cost is what inspires me most.

When I was little I remember her singing and dancing as we set up our Christmas decorations. She would wave her hands in the air and sing "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," and "Sleigh Ride." When I was in junior high I was probably embarrassed about it. Now I look forward to it every year, and I will probably do the same.

Mom, you are the reason I love music, books and life.
And you are the reason I love Christmas.
