You are not stupid, you are missing your mum...
Welcome to the forum. It is only natural that you feel the way that you do. This will be your first Christmas without your mum. It is understandable that you feel the way that you do. It sounds like you have a lot of fond memories of your mother. That is wonderful. Hold on to them tightly. Know that you may feel sad, but that is okay.
If it gets too bad, look into some grief counseling. It does wonders. But if you cry, cry... Let it out and let go. There is nothing wrong with that. IF you laugh, that is even better. Talk about
the wonderful moments that you had together. Keep her close to your heart.
Take it one day at a time. Try to go with the flow of things and try to stay in the now if you can. But if your mind drifts to your mother, enjoy it.
I almost forgot, today is my and my husband's anniversary too!!!
