“One of my favorite Christmases was 2008. I had breast cancersurgery in June of 2008 and was half way through chemo treatment,which lasted 53 weeks. My family decided we needed to do some-thing fun – to meet half way between [Mineral Wells] and Colorado.We rented a cabin in Ruidoso [New Mexico] for one week.“For a Christmas tree, we found a branch from one of the fur treesand stuck it in a wine bottle. I was bald as a doorknob and everyonewore hats because I had to wear a hat. My grandsons fed the wild‘reindeer’ from the porch. They wanted to pick up the ‘reindeer’ poopto show their friends back home Santa found them in Ruidoso.“It was old-fashioned, with no shopping, and that was our treat – being together,” she said. “It brought to mind how very fortunate weare to spend time together with family. It was the best Christmas giftof all.”
