    Tracy, I’ve loved your blog for a long time and I was saddened to read about your Mom’s passing. It’s a loss that splits you open.

    We used to be away for holidays when my stepdad was alive. We went to a lively household with lots of noise and fun. But things do change and some years it’s hard.
    Now, many years later, Mom has moved 250 miles closer and it’s just the three of us…Mom and my husband and me. We enjoy each other. We are grateful for what we have.

    Wishing you so much peace. Just keep goin’ with it!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family – I’m sure your mom is watching over you all and smiling down that you are together.

  • Vera from Lisbon (Portugal)

    Dear Tracy, I’m so sorry for your loss… But you’re her daughter, so she will forever be alive, both in and with you.
    Wishing you and your Family all the best, especially during the holidays. :)

    A dear friend of mine got word, recently, that she has cancer. I’m bringing her dinner after her surgery later this week but I was also looking for a breakfast item that I could make to bring because I believe in going the extra mile. Especially when you’re dealing with a dear friend who is fighting something very scary.
    I think your mom’s coffee cake is perfect. Thank you for linking to it.
    Your mother is a gift that keeps on giving.

    I can’t imagine how tough the first round of holidays must be without your mom, so sending lots of love, light, and positive vibes. Your spirit is bright so keep on shining! xo

    Nana Upstairs, Nana Downstairs is one of my favorite books for kids who are grieving. I maintain a small library for a childhood grief organization and would love to give you some recommendations if you are ready to do some reading to help you through. xx
