“Like snowflakes, my Christmas memories gather and dance – each beautiful, unique and too soon gone.” ~Deborah Whipp
Me: “I think it’s time we consider sending out photo Christmas cards.”
Me: “Because I’ve forgotten what we look like and maybe, just maybe, everyone else has, too.”
Ernie: “You’re probably right.”
As this year’s Christmas greetings started popping up in our mailbox, we took a moment to bring out some of the cards from previous years. My how our family and friends have “grown up” over the years!
We can’t keep every Christmas card we receive, but we do keep these — just in case anyone was wondering.
And they are just as great to receive the day after Christmas, as the days before.
Reminders that the JOY should never end.
We also love to tuck away gifts that can keep on giving over the years. The candle above was a gift nearly 16 years ago from one of our sons-in-law’s parents. We’re sure it still has a few more Christmases left, too.
As the 2nd Day of Christmas comes to a close, I hope that you have deeply contented and satisfied feelings lingering from yesterday that will carry you through the remainder of this last week of 2013, and well into the New Year to come.
