635853148292844087573158707_merry-christmas-snoopy-9066336-800-600-1Christmas is this Sunday and I’ve been sitting around listening to holiday music and getting a little melancholy, I guess I’m getting old. I miss my mom she loved Christmas because the family would get together or at least call. I miss giving her, her present and no matter what it was how big or small she’d love it. My dad would cook dinner then go pass out and mom would make excuses but it was all good. I miss my brother and his laugh as well as his love of Christmas. I miss his wife my sister in law. She was Japanese and was fascinated by the Christmas display we had in our home. The tree and the trains running around it (I still do the trains). I miss my niece their daughter she really had the Christmas spirit and she seemed to keep it all year. She hasn’t been gone that long and I feel sorrow for her family at this time of the year. She always had a kind word for me no matter what was going on in her life. Her two sons look a lot like her and I hope they grow up to be just like her. I guess getting older makes people like Christmas less because of the memories but for me Christmas is sad because I’m older and I don’t get toys anymore. I guess Christmas is really just for kids. Well enough with the melancholy you all have a great Christmas and be safe. MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM FLOUNDER AND FATS from Medellin Colombia.
