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.

Hey dumb ass it takes awhile to recover from a heart attack. You will know soon enough if you don't drop a few lbs. Whats with the I care now act. We all know how you feel about your mom. Did you move out when your dad was sick to avoid resposibility?. I feel sorry for your mom if she has the audacity to throw up. Are you familiar with the movie..Whatever happened to Baby Jane? I would'nt want you to care for my dead dog. See a dentist for God sake.

Seane-Anna, Wow! sounds like you don't have an admirer in Anonmous...Seems if he didn't have anything nice to say about a person he should not say anything. I'm sure you are aware it takes time to recup after a heart attack. He/she is not your judge there is a higher power for that and I would say to the commenter "Judge not that ye may be judged."...Stay well.....

Anon is just a troll; or it's Janey-cake's panty liner (which would 'splain Janey-cakes' leftist view of life).

Anonymous is hilarious. I almost hope he/she/it keeps stopping by.
