Post Just Wanted to Share Info
Last year was my first Christmas without my mother. I wanted to somehow "feel" her presence so I ordered a "Merry Christmas From Heaven" Christmas ornament from Amazon. I placed a photo of my mom in the ornament and I hung it on my Christmas tree. I will use it every year. Here is the link:

Aren't they beautiful, I have 2 of them a little different from each other but I hang them both!

I still put out greeting cards my husband gave me over the yrs for different holidays, of course my kids think I am a bit weird but who cares they make me feel good, I am so thankful I kept them all !

I don't think that's weird at all Irene. Actually, I've kept all of the cards my mother has given me since I was around 18 years old..and I'm in my 40's.

I have 35 yrs of cards and the one's I love best are the older one's as they are so pretty !
We also mark the anniversary of my husbands passing with Balloons , I buy a dozen and each grandchild gets to write a special message to their Grandpa and my 4 children write one too.

Irene,
I also do the balloon thing:). I think the hardest times for me are the anniversary of my mom's passing, her birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas...but I would have to say the one that is really tough is Mother's Day. Wow...35 years worth of cards...that's beautiful!
