Dear Ms. Wauson, Merry Christmas!!...That chocolate and oatmeal cookies sound delicious...two of my favorites. I suppose the thing that I miss most about Christmas over the last few years is Mama and all the Christmas Day hubbub. We were dirt poor, daddy raised watermelons and peanuts and if we ever had two coins to rub together you can bet they weren't more than pennies or nickels...no dimes or quarters for us. And, Christmas was always a very very special time for my mother...she loved to spend the day before Christmas and Christmas morning cooking. There was the home made cornbread dressing, baked chicken (she liked chicken and ham better than turkey), fruit salad, sweet potato casserole with little marshmallows on top, and at least two or three pies which usually included a lemon and a chocolate merinque. And, out with the record player (remember those things with the flat round black disks?), and lots and lots of Christmas music. All the many grandkids, myself and my brothers all usually showed up for Christmas dinner and the opening of presents...And, since shes gone, most of the grandkids and siblings have gone their way and hardly ever see each other. But, Mama always made Christmas special, and I miss her and the Christmases she loved so much. This will be the 16th Christmas without her, but I can still mentally see her in the kitchen fussing with pots and pans, adjusting the oven while hollering at the grandkids to 'go outside and play'. Mama was like beer...took a while to acquire a taste for her and she had quite a kick in large doses. She often got herself in trouble cause she was very direct and honest. She never did learn that it's better not to tell her daugher in laws that they look a little heavier lately or wouldn't black shoes go better with that dress? To her daughter in laws she was a dragon lady cause she constantly kept them off balance with her unassuming remarks which she hardly ever realized were bothersome to others...she was just being herself. After being around her for so long, I grew to take delight in the constant little squabbles in which she became involved...I knew they were not serious and in a couple days everything would be back to normal. Yep, it's been 16 years without all the food and music and Mama. The last 3 years of her life were pretty miserable...I spent many, many hours with her down at M D Anderson Cancer Center undergoing treatments for cancer. And, ironically she recovered from the big C and passed away in her sleep a few months later from an unrelated cause. I sure do miss that old hellraiser! She was always the heart and soul of my Christmas!
