So Christmas is nearly upon us once again...... A time for giving, sharing, fun, laughter and good food. But it also makes us remember people we love who are no longer here to celebrate.
I turn 41 on Sunday, and it has always been a tradition in my family that the decorations go up on my birthday.
When I had my own family, the tradition continued, however my loving Mum and Dad are no longer here to join in, and putting up the decs whilst celebrating my birthday brings both joy and pain because it brings back so many memories. (My Dad loved Christmas so much he had us playing Christmas carols as a kid on my sisters birthday........... 15th Nov lol)
So I want to remember my Mum and Dad (and the other family members and friends whom I have loved and lost) by raising a CAG drink to them.
Please join in by raising a glass of your loved ones favourite tipple and feel free to add a story as to why you raise that glass.
Merry Christmas every one xx
Dad (02/1997) I raise a glass of port to you because you made me believe Santa preferred this to milk. I love and miss you, God bless
Mum, (09/2007) I raise a glass of Baileys to you because that's all you drank. lol, I love and miss you, God bless
I raise a glass of Rose wine (my tipple) to the rest of my family and friends no longer with us. I love and miss you, God bless
