The time has come for the yearly dragging out of the dusty boxes which are filled with the holiday decorations. It always seems to take hours for me to unwrap the ornaments. It's not that I have a house full of holiday boxes. Nope, instead I have a heart full of loving Christmas memories of the past.
Each year as I unwrap the treasured ornaments and decorations, I travel back in time to when I was a child and my parents and other beloved family members were alive. Their smiles, voices and stories of their youths all swim around in my heart. Often, I find myself just sitting quietly as I relive the warmth of Christmas past with my family.
Take time this year to share your Christmas memories of the past with your children and grandchildren. Give them a reason to sit and think lovingly about the past in years to come.
Ahhhh, genealogy. Sometimes, just an ornament can bring time to a standstill.
