Looking forward to Christmas

Hello all
Since I lost my mum Christmas was something I didn’t feel like celebrating. Last Christmas I put a tree up for first time in 6 years and though I was still feeling it wasn’t like Christmas for me I couldn’t get out of my head that if my mum was here she’d of put up the best Christmas you could ever see. My mum loved Christmas and she made it feel like Christmas for me and the whole family.
This year feels different I don’t know it does it just does. Putting the tree up makes mg heart sink so much. Every branch I put together results in tears I sit and stare at the tree feeling this is not right but I carry on putting up. Once it’s up and lit up I think of my mum the Christmases I haven’t had the last 7 years
What makes Christmas so very special is seeing the smile on my partners granddaughter. She’s 4 years old and the look of wonder as she talks about Father Christmas and as she opens her presents helps me to forget for just a bit of time how I wish was here for this Christmas
Marry Christmas to everyone on here
