When I was a little girl
my mommom would wear this pin on the label of her coat
every Christmas Season.
She would sit me on her lap,so I could stare at its beauty.
I thought it was the most beautiful thing I ever seen.
After she passed,I thought life would never be the same.
She was my other half and she is gone.
As Christmas approached, I was still deeply saddened.
I didn't think that Christmas would be a happy holiday again.
Two days before Christmas Eve, I received a package from my father.
It had gifts for the kids and me inside.
As my daughter and I unpacked it
There was a small gold box that said Open Now on it
As I opened it,I recognized it instantly.
It was my mommom pin!
My dad knew how much I loved that pin and wanted me to know she
was still with me always.
Needless to say it brightened my day and my Christmas!
Knowing that I can have her near me every holiday from then on out.
