12 Days of Christmas Cards - Day 6

Merry Christmas!!  Thought I'd share this photo from days gone past.  It makes me laugh - all you can see of me is my braces!
 Here's another one, which I assume is Christmas time, based on the matching red sweaters my brothers are wearing. My baby sister would be just under two months old.
In the photo below, probably taken that same year, it looks like we are all wearing our Christmas pyjamas!
We are missing my brother Craig (on the left in each of the above photos) today, this first Christmas without him.  It is such a magical time of year for so many, we often forget there are also many people grieving during the holidays. My heart goes out to all of them, especially my sister-in-law, niece and nephews.

Here's a card I made for my mother, as my sister and I are joining her to celebrate this first Christmas in her new home.
As Charles Dickens wrote, God bless us, every one!

Yes loss has no time frame and enters our lives on its own time. To all those trying to renew the feeling of hope at Christmas. I am sure your mom loved your card. One day it will bring special memories.
