Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.
Ruth Ann Schabacker
Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmastime.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
The best times are the ones that linger on in our on in our memories, the things that neither money nor credit can buy.
Today’s gift suggestion is to :
Create a memory. Christmas memories begin with enjoyable and special activities or events that with occurred in the years past or have become rations.
You could build gingerbread house with your grandchildren or bake and decorate cookies as a family.
You could go carol singing with family and friends or read the Christmas story as you sit together around the tree.
Memory is the diary we all carry about with us.
Almost all of my finest memories of Christmas center around the things we did rather than the gifts I got.
One year we decorated gingerbread house together, This year we made snowmen out of socks. Both were fun for all ages.
Memories are what really help keep family together over the years. It doesn’t have to be anything that costs lots of money or involves a lot of work. Simple things like going for a ride to view the Christmas lights can create some very happy memories.
Like snowflakes my Christmas memories gather and dance - each beautiful, unique and too soon gone.
