My mother, who was not a procrastinator, started with 5 stockings-one for each grandchild. Together we tried to continue as the grandchildren acquired spouses. Then came her great grandchildren. That makes 20 stockings on the list. When she stopped, I....well, I procrastinated. Each year, I was going to finish out the legacy she started. This year it's done. Nearly done. All but 3 are done and delivered. Remaining...1 spouse, 1 new baby coming our way in 2019, and 1 extra...just in case. Wrapping up what she began, stitching love and protection into every one, just as she did for those she made and would have done for those she left behind.
