It was a tough Thanksgiving without my mom. I miss her so much. This coming month is going to be hard without her. She loved the Christmas season and that's where I got my joy of the time from. I am so thankful for my family and my friends that will be by my side and enjoy all the good things to come! Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season!
