    Magic Moment

    Main journaling reads:


    1980. Motherís last Christmas Eve. Within two months she died of cancer. Although we knew the end was very near, we tried to keep everything "normal." That meant we did the usual celebrations, which were Christmas Eve at mine and Peterís house and Christmas Day at her house.


    After our Christmas Eve meal featuring my favorite soup (which I still expect yearly), we moved to the family room to open presents. That year there were mounds of gifts under the tree, flowing out well into the family room.


    Before the gift exchange we helped Mother get comfortable in a chair where she could see the tree, the fireplace with the roaring fire, and the picture window overlooking our yard.


    What a surprise and delight to look out the window and see that it was snowing! Snow had not been predicted, but the flakes were falling hard
    and heavy. It was the only white Christmas Eve I ever remember.


    Mother loved Christmas, and she loved snow. We think God gave her a special gift on her last Christmas Eve.


    Caption under photo reads:
    Photo of Mother from an earlier Christmas; taken by my father, a professional photographer. What WAS he thinking to stand her in front of the tree so that it appears she had garland wrapped around her body and an angel on her head?? Smile
