It's mother's day. I just want to tell some story about mine. It's about her and christmas.
Geraldo @aldocomet
There're no words can describe how incredible she is.
Geraldo @aldocomet
Christmas was kind of a family celebration. A traditional one with cookies, Christmas decorations, family visit, open house, and happiness.
Geraldo @aldocomet
With her busyness, she still managed to bake many cookies few weeks before Christmas.
Geraldo @aldocomet
As a cookies lover, mom always kept those cookies out from my reach. I would have my full access just few days before Christmas.
Geraldo @aldocomet
I was sure that mom made those cookies not for the guests but for me. She knows how I love those sweet cookies very much!

Mom had her certain way to make us stay home
Geraldo @aldocomet
Mom usually spent few weekends on November-December as baking days. That's mean my sister and I had to stay home helping her.
Geraldo @aldocomet
*it's been almost 2 years without her, it's still weird to talk about her in past tense.
Geraldo @aldocomet
Over the years she made several kind of cookies and cakes. And I have my personal favorites cookies which caused me to skip meal.
Geraldo @aldocomet
She stopped making Christmas treat since she got the cancer.
Geraldo @aldocomet
However, every Christmas she always mentioned how she missed to bake some cakes and cookies.

Our last Christmas together was 2 years ago. She was in huge pain. She even couldn't come to the Christmas eve service.
Geraldo @aldocomet
A moment before I left her room that night she said,
Geraldo @aldocomet
"last year I still went to the Christmas eve service, this year I couldn't, and next year I'll be gone."
Geraldo @aldocomet
I was stacked, sat beside her and said nothing. Tried not to imagine Christmas without her.
Geraldo @aldocomet
It was true, she's gone about two months after our last Christmas. .
Geraldo @aldocomet
And even in her pain she still praised God, admired what He had done in her life.
Geraldo @aldocomet
This is the second Christmas without her. She's out there, happily and painless.
Geraldo @aldocomet
Anyway, despite of not having her in this Christmas, I reed to recognize one person who's been trying hard to make mom 'present'.
Geraldo @aldocomet
Thank you @epieq for trying making this Christmas more presentable with those cookies & that Christmas tree.. :) *hugs*
