Day 2: Favorite Christmas/Holiday Memory

Hmmm...this is tough for me! I have lots of favorite memories because my parents made every holiday so special. I'll list one that is happy and sad at the same time. If I sat here and thought about it, I could list one from every year of my life, though. :)

My Grammie Bonnie (mom's mom) passed away the day before my 5th grade school year started. She battled brain cancer twice and was so courageous. She was an amazing woman and there's a huge hole in our family since she went to Heaven. That first Thanksgiving was just plain awful. Then a dear family invited my family over for a special dessert and game night on Thanksgiving evening. It was totally different and gave us something to look forward to that was in no way connected to my Grammie. (Does that make sense?) It was a happy little boost to our holiday. I hope I can add that same change of pace to someone's holiday when they need it most some year.
