Default She Made It!!

Tonight at 7pm, my aunt marched down the hall of the ER wearing a fur coat, a red hat and a HUGE red Christmas bow tied onto her button, and gave my mom the very best Christmas surprise ever! It was a happy and tearful reunion, and the first time I've seen my mom smile in weeks!

Wonderful news!! Now you need to take advantage of this most wonderful gift and find a few moments of time for yourself. Your Mother is blessed to have you and your Aunt.
