Where are you Christmas

As most of you know, my mother passed away only a few months before Christmas. When the holidays came around I wasn't sure what I would do. I didn't feel like celebrating, and yet I made an effort. But it wasn't the same. I began hearing this song on the radio and it would make me cry - it described most of what I was feeling. I couldn't find Christmas anywhere, but most of all, I couldn't find it in my heart. I can remember driving home from work and this song would play and I would cry. Eventually, I found a bit of Christmas and this song has become one of my favorites.

That song is beautiful and heart wrenching at the same time. I can understand why it had that affect on you last season. Hopefully this year the Christmas spirit will find you.

I know how hard it can be. That song is lovely. This year I'm not as "Christmassy" as usual, so maybe I need to hear it a bit more.

I'm playing catchup here and enjoyed this song but I truly loved Mary did you know by Mark Lowry. I had never heard him before but I am most definitely going to look for a CD by him with this song. Thank you.

Never heard that before... Ugh. Where is my rock? Hope this year is better. We never forget.
