One of my most favorite blogs to write is this one, my Christmas message to our ThriftBooks community.

Most often when I have written a blog for all of you they've come from my perspective as a mother of three, but today's blog will be different. I will not be discussing my role as a mother and a parent, and will not even be writing about reading or books. Today is all about my mom, Helene, and about being her daughter.
