Sad Christmas Memory
12/10/2011 7:01:25 AM
On December 13th 1949, early in the morning, my father roused me from sleep to tell me that my mother had died in the night-- "gone to heaven," I think he said.

I had just turned 12 in November, Christmas would be coming in a few short days, but I knew I would be brave for my father's sake.

I went to school that day though daddy said I didn't have to go. I told some children that my mother had died in the night. I said, "it's for the best, now she's not in pain any more." One of the children said, "You didn't love your mother if you say it's for the best."

That's when I stopped being brave and started to cry. I had just lost my mother, and it was just before Christmas, I did love my mother, and now she had left me and gone to heaven.

Children can be cruel sometimes. They say what they feel, they're children, they're just learning the ways of the world, they're not to blame for words that come out wrong. But, over sixty years later, I still feel the sadness of that day, the hurt of those words, the loss of my mum, the sadness for my dad's loss, my lostness in the midst of trying to be brave.

Christmas is a wonderful time of year but it's a difficult time to lose a loved one.
