The Best Christmas Present Ever!


On this date, many years ago...  I received my very best Christmas present ever...our daughter, Kristen.  She was born 9 days shy of Christmas,  and I'll never forget the feeling of holding my sweet daughter under the sparkling lights of our Christmas tree, and wondering what the heck I was gonna do for the next 18 years...  That's how little I knew then about being a Mom, like your job is done after 18 years!  I've put in a few more years than those first 18, and I still have so much to learn and do. It was Kristen that first taught me about being a Mom.  Now, Kristen will be a Mom soon, and I can't believe that my baby will have a baby of her own! 

I love you so much Kristen, and so does Harry (what she disrespectfully calls her Dad;-) and your brothers love you too. Happy Happy Birthday dear Kristen, may all your dreams come true...Just like you made mine come true thirty something years ago.  Love, MOM
