FC: Michigan Vacation 2010
1: Dear Mom, This year has been almost a whirlwind. There has been both laughter and joy--as well as tears and sorrow. There have been times where we all didn't know if we were going to be able to stay positive. Yet, if there's one thing that I want to remember this year, it's that you held your head high for all of us. I've learned so much from you...not just in this year but also in my lifetime. You have taught me that I need to work hard for every single thing that I desire in life. You have showed me that anything is possible if you put effort into it. Most of all, you've showed me that sometimes, a little love is all you need to mend any illness. This December, I watched you sit next to a man that you have loved for almost 30 years. On the day right after his heart attack, I came to visit him in the hospital...and you were right there by his side. You were there when he needed someone to be strong for him. You were his shoulder to lean on and our shoulder to cry on. I admire your strength, and I wish that there were some way I could thank you for keeping us all together. On that note, this present is a thanks from me to you. Our trip to Michigan was almost a chance for us to celebrate the gift we were given this year. Thank you for all the little things you do...I can't begin to describe how much they---and you mean to me! Love, Alexandria | Christmas 2010
