Mama's Christmas Wish
It is the first day of
December, and Christmas will be here before we realize it. This will
be our second Christmas without Mama. Life to Mama was all about
loving and sharing, and Christmas was the time to “get that done”.
Her family was her mission field, and so many others through life
became her mission field, too. When I was a child, Christmas was an
exciting time. My grandparents, Big Tom and Gigi, always came
Christmas morning to share in the joy of the day. When I had children, we often went to Mama and Daddy's house in Georgia for a
time with all of our family—my brother and his wife and two
children and my sister would be there. Sometimes other people would
come just to be a part of our family—friends that were lonely and
needed love. God always brought those who had needs into Mama's life.
As the years passed, Christmas remained the greatest time to love
family and friends.
