BOUNTY

This time of year brings me gratitude for a bounty of blessings.

My son, my daughter, my granddaughter, and my grandson — to have them here for a celebration of  Christmas brings me joy.

So many treasured memories — I open them one by one, like carefully wrapped packages laid under the tree, placing ribbons and bows in pile to be used again.  Tears, of course, for those who are gone, but the tears  make the memories all the more precious.  Diamonds and pearls could not make me richer.

Friends, both near and far, who lend support with words and deeds or simple silent presence.

(Of course, for some it is still all about the presents!)

  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas. The memories and tears are as you say more valuable than jewels.

    BTW, that is a really cool carpet. I love it.

  2. I can almost remember the excitement of Christmas eve as a child. Not too many things top that as we age except watching a loved child experience it. Have a wonderful Christmas as those faces light up.
