What is Your Best "Mom Story":

There was one year where my momma was all alone, which was around Christmas time. She told me she wasn't going to be able to get me anything for Christmas. I didn't want her to know I was upset. But that whole week was sad and I really thought I wasn't getting anything. Christmas came, and I usually wake up early to open my gifts, but instead, I just laid there. When I finally got out of bed, I woke up and everything I wanted was there.
