“Christmas is the day that holds all time together.”– Alexander Smith
Mom’s 94th Christmas and Counting:
Counting the Christmas Day mom was born on.
Counting the number of Santa’s knees mom must have sat on.
Counting the number of Santa’s knees she took my sister and me to sit on.
Counting the number of Santa’s knees she took my two daughters to sit on.
Counting the gifts of loving, caring, sharing and giving she has brought to our family and to so many others that there are just too many to count.
Counting the memories and the smiles she magically creates for us all.
For a meaningful, wonderful, joyful Christmas, you can always count on my mom.
My mom, Helen Douglas Martin Laughon, was born on Christmas Day, 1919. I believe the old Timex watch slogan was really made for her … she “takes a licking and keeps on ticking”.
