 Christmas Song by Renee Ashley Baker (click link ):  https://reneeashleybaker.wordpress.com/2009/11/30/cyber-monday-online-shopping-plus-an-online-christmas-song-songwriting-contest/

above, Renee Ashley Baker’s beautiful  Mother (Mrs. Ashley)

              Dear Mother:

              I say,  “Merry Christmas Mother” because you made me French toast on Christmas morning (and because you made me French toast every morning when I was a little girl growing up in your house in St. Louis, Missouri).

               I say, “Merry Christmas Mother”  because you made every Christmas a happy and memorable one as I shall never forget your endless gifts to me of bubble bath and bath salts, nightgowns with matching robe and house slippers, necklaces and watches, and cameras and tape recorders.

                   I say, “Merry Christmas Mother” because I remember, even now, the beautiful colors, of the wheel that lit your silver Christmas tree and lit (warmly) the beautifully wrapped packages that you had carefully placed underneath it (year after year after year).

                    I say, “Merry Christmas Mother” because the smell of your Nestle Toll House Cookies and apple pies wafted through  the house every Christmas as I sipped iced tea through a straw out of one of your colorful plastic tumblers .  (I was only two years old at that time but it wasn’t until I was older that I got to drink out of the crystal glasses that my brother “James” brought to my mother from Germany.  The same crystal glasses (with the gold rims) that my brother would play music on whenever he came home for Christmas.  (Note:  It is my same brother–James–who was in the U.S. Air Force,  who did some “secret work” for the U.S. Secret Service,  who was friends with a real ‘Dupont’, and who lived on Fifth Avenue in New York just a few short blocks away from the Fifth Avenue apartment of  former First Lady Jackie KENNEDY  Onassis. . . .).

                     I say, “Merry Christmas Mother”  because you  were always beautiful and because I love you and because it is you who Royalty, the jet set, and other  “very important people”  will see when they look at this website and when they look at me.

Note:  My Mother (Mrs. Ashley pictured above) wore silk dresses and crocodile heels; wore real diamond jewelry (pictured above), wore a real leopard coat and  owned a  real sterling silver tea set (not silver plate).  My Mother (Mrs. Ashley pictured above) was an Eastern Star (the female equivalent of a Mason) and –My Mother (Mrs. Ashley pictured above)  was born in the great year (with Bentley) of  1 9 1 9. . . .
