Seven years ago tonight, I went to my late parents house and spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with them. It was the last Christmas that I was able to spend with them. Mom died the following March after she had an aneurysm and Dad died the following July from Leukemia.
Spending Christmas with Mom and Dad was great but I wish I had known it would be the last Christmas I would be spending with them. If I had known that it would be our last Christmas together, I would've appreciated it more.
Because I'm unable to drive, a woman who I know gave me a ride to and from my parents house that Christmas. Sadly, three years ago, I had a falling out with this lady and we're not friends anymore. I made an effort to reconcile with her but it did no good. But I still appreciate that she gave me a ride to and from my parents house in 2012. I wish everybody who reads this a Merry XMAS.
