This year I swore I was NOT going to put up a Christmas tree. I hated the thought of not being able to celebrate this holiday with my Mom. It was her favorite time of the year. But LW said that we just had to.
With that in the back of my mind, I went to Target last Friday and came home with a 7 1/2 foot skinny tree. I doubted that I would like it, but I actually love love love it.
I think about the only Christmas item that is NOT Boyds are my stockings. LW surprised me the other day with a personalized bear stocking though and he even brought one over for his youngest daughter who will be with us during Christmas. So tonight I ordered one for him. :) When his stocking is in I'll post a picture of all of them together. I feel like I finally have this amazing family. For the first time in the last two years I feel like I **might** be able to enjoy Christmas. LW has convinced me that I can do this holiday and be happy about it, and still miss my Mom at the same time.
Several of you were right...I think it was *suppose* to happen...my meeting him. It's the first good thing that I have done in two years, next to getting divorced!
Ahhhh...I can do this!
