The Christmas Shoes
Christmas songs aren't supposed to make you cry, but this one does every time. It's called The Christmas Shoes and it's by the group New Song. This modern Christmas classic makes me cry each time I hear it, but it's particularly poignant this year. You see, my Mom had a second heart attack in August. She's doing fine now but I can't shake the feeling that she's not out of the woods. As the holidays have come upon us again I've been wondering if this holiday season will be our last with Mom, and what I will do if it is. Needless to say, such unease doesn't make for a totally merry Christmas. That's why The Christmas Shoes really speaks to me this year. I'm putting the song on my blog for others who may be going through a touchy time with a loved one this holiday season, and to remind all of us what the Christmas spirit really is. Enjoy, and merry Christmas.
