Unfinished Gifts

I received this last night:

I own the pan, it was simply being returned to me. With some unmade lemon bars, and an apology that the bars were not made.
I was also offered two Christmas gifts this week, one with out a tag, (when all the others had them, and one without a treat, (when all the others had one.)
Then I started thinking about unfinished gifts, why we give them and who gets them.
I think the people that receive these "unfinished gifts" are loved more, at least I like to think that I am.
Let me explain:
The reasons we give them: life kinda gets in the way, we get short handed, we run out of stuff or just don't feel like it.
I think when I'm in any of these gift giving situations, that gift will always go to my mom.
Mom gets it because she doesn't care if it's unfinished or not.
She loves the gift, no matter what it is.
She knows that life happens to everyone.
She won't talk bad to anyone about receiving it such poor conditions.
She understands "it's the thought that counts."
Sad as it might be sometimes, family gets put on the back burner and she is just grateful to be there.
And she will still love me unconditionally.
I am grateful for my unmade lemon bars.

I'm thinking this might be the fastest way instead of calling everyone.
I need some addresses for Christmas cards.
I know for sure I need:
Annie and Morgan
Deanna and Bradley
Mike and Raquel
Mechelle and Phil
As for everyone else, I at least have one, but it might be old. If you want to sent it to me anyway I can double check.
My comments are all moderated by me so if you want to just leave it as a comment you can, I won't post it.
Thanks for all your help!!!
Happy Christmas!!!
