What a sweet tribute to your mom! I'm glad you were able to share it with us.
Thanks for the re-telling of this moving story.

i love the ending. When we know Jesus and we know we have a place waiting for us in heaven, we all get happy endings don't we? Touching story.

The music box imagery is very lovely in this bittersweet story!

There are several editing errors that, if fixed, would really polish this little gem.
Very touching personal narrative. Holidays are just not the same with loved ones not with us, but what a comfort when you know they are with Him. :)
Was there a POV shift in there? I got a little confused. It's tough telling such a heartfelt story in under 750 words, I know.

Overall, this is a bittersweet story.
