Today, I'd like to take a moment to remember my paternal grandmother, Helen. You see, she dearly loved Christmas but she passed away in November of last year before she could celebrate it one last time.
For many, many Christmas Eve's growing up, we would gather around her to sing Christmas carols together as an extended family. She had music in her veins, and passed on this talent for playing musical instruments to her sons (my dad being one of them), and grandchildren (with me being one of them).
Thank you, Gran, for the gift of music. You're missed.
On a side note, if you'd like to send someone a personalised message from Santa himself, visit my link for the day. It's a lot of fun (it rumoured to get kids talking to the screen) :-)
