For the first time in my life, I spent the holidays alone. My mom was not there, neither my siblings nor my nieces and nephews. I did have my husband for almost twenty years and my son who had just turned twelve, but I still felt alone. I know I have a wonderful husband, whom I love, as much today as the day I married him twenty years ago, and my son who is the light of my life for the past twelve years. I know I am very lucky to have both of them here with me tonight, but it was different for me. It was not the same as having my six sisters’ and brother with their children, all together for the holidays.
It was Christmas Eve, and after I finally found my way home from the Northridge mall, my husband and I were wrapping gifts; our son was keeping track of Santa as he watched television. As I was wrapping the gifts, I could not help drifting back to into my past of my long gone childhood days.
I could still remember the cold crisp feel of the winter, the smell of the snow, and my Mom in the kitchen with my sisters and a few of my Aunts, cooking the food they had been preparing for Christmas Eve for days. Everything had to be homemade, all special things ordered, everything had to be perfect and always was; unlike store bought or frozen that we get these days.
