It’s that time of year again! You know, the time of year you don’t have time to breathe between cleaning, shopping, wrapping gifts, decorating the house, baking and entertaining family. Did I say cleaning? It has to be the most exhausting 2 months of the year! My God, how I miss having you to go shopping with me and get our little breaks! So many times, I find myself saying, Cynthia would love that! I will miss our ritual of exchanging our “favorite things” gifts at Christmas. We always put so much thought into those gifts. It always showed just how much we really “heard” each other, through out those long lunches. Some times it was a simple “I really like that….” and next Christmas, there it would be from one of us. Sometimes one of us would discover something and the other just had to have it. Giving gifts like that was fun and meaningful and appreciated. It is hectic, but know that a not a day goes by that I don’t think of you.
