Over the next few days I'll be revealing some of my favorite commercials of this Christmas Season. Many bring back memories from my childhood, while others touch my heart with themes of my life today. All are amazing.

Apple'e Holiday Surprise commercial hits my heart hard. After losing my mom to ovarian cancer, the whole family has struggled, especially my dad. We all just felt lost. She was such a huge part of everything we did and felt during the holidays. Our Christmas was forever changed with her passing.

This commercial captures the feelings of a family as they struggle to move on during the most wonderful time of the year. It is so hard to do, but it IS possible to smile in the memories.
