The Story About This Advent Calendar For The Entire Year
My momma lived in Germany. Visiting her was not that easy.
Two years ago I created a calendar like an advent calendar for my momma and send it to her as a Christmas gift. After she got it, she called me back to thank me, but she thought it was a funny gift idea for an adult. We talked about the time when I was a little kid and enjoyed my advent calendar. She opened her first window on New Years Day and texted me” happy New Year to you to, we will make this year special “ because the first window said “ happy new year, this year will be awesome !” I remember this first day like it was yesterday because it started something beautiful in my relationship with my momma.
She set up her calendar next to her coffee maker and put a clock with my time zone next to the calendar. Every morning, when she made her coffee, she opened her window and when it was morning at my time zone she texted, skyped or called me, regarding the massage from her window of the day.
I wanted to share this story with you and inspire you to reconnect and tighten the bond with your loved ones. Some times life get so busy that we don’t take the time for the important people in our lives, but life is short. Let your loved ones know how much you care and love them while you can. My momma passed away last year but this “calendar” year let us reconnect and tighten our bonds to each other that we became like best friends.
