To My Mother.

Monday, December 13, 2010

(I am taking only the briefest of breaks from my self-imposed blogging hiatus to write this little post to my mom...)

Yesterday, I was curled up on the couch eating the Chex Mix you had sent me earlier in the week and I was instantly transported to your house during the holidays. It was almost as though we were listening to the John Denver and The Muppets: A Christmas Together record or, perhaps even better, Elvis singing "Santa, Bring My Baby Back To Me" while hanging the stockings over the hearth.

While I was decorating cookies last night, I said to Jenner, "I sure miss my mom." He smiled and said, "I know you do, baby." Thank you, Mom, for always reading "Yes, Virginia" to me and teaching me to believe in the possibility and the magic of the holidays. I still can't believe we won't be spending Christmas together this year, but I hope you know how GIDDY I am that I'll be flying home to see you the next day. You see, for me, there is no merry without my mama.

I love you.


  1. Awww... There's love for Estelle in Japan, too. It was a treat to be able to join your family for breakfast in Tokeland this summer. The was a lot of love in that house!

  2. This is one of the sweetest/cutest/most loving posts I have ever read! :) Sorry to hear you won't see your mama for Christmas, but I'm happy to hear you'll see her soon after!

  3. This is so sweet, lady. I know you're sad about not being there, but the 26th will be magical! Love your face.

  4. Awww so sweet. I know how you're feeling, I won't be home for Christmas this year either. I agree 'there is no merry without my mama'

  5. This is wonderful. I hope you both have a very merry holiday season together!

  6. aaaaaaawww I love this! and I love you! I hope to meet your momma next time she is here! I guess that is why I am not so merry... cause there is no "merry" without my momma too!
