My mother collected Angels. I brought the one home with me that I looked at for days as I cared for her which was in her room. I had one here at home that I had already bought for her and then she was gone. Last year after Christmas, I found an Angel on sale and immediately bought it and then it hit me with a stab to the heart that mom wasn't here for me to give it to her. So this year, I decided I would buy another angel "for mom". This is something I want to do each year now in memory of mom. These angels will sit with the one that I brought home. Same love for my mother, same mother, but new traditions that I must start. Anybody else starting new traditions to honor their mom? Lots of gentle hugs, Sharon
