A Christmas Memory....

Hello... just a wee note to let you know that Suzanne over at Blueberry Cottage had invited me to write a Christmas memory for her series ... Thank you, Suzanne for letting me share a precious recollection  with you.
I should have explained though that we were a very poor little family.  A lot of folks were back there in the 1950's. 
I really did not realize it back then.  When parents take the time to wrap each wee gift in tissue and tie it with love a child looks through rose tinted glasses and sees plenty...
And I am sure it took awhile to save the precious dollars for two small dolls to delight two little girls...
It was many years later before I realized how hard Mom and Dad had worked to provide such a glorious day for us.  Appreciation certainly comes when you grow and need to do the same miracle for your own children. 
 Love can make such a difference especially at Christmas...
And the reason for the season comes to us in the name of Love...

So, girls if you have time please stop over at Suzannes and check it out and leave a comment if you can...
Have a happy week...

  6. That is such a sweet story, Faye... I don't remember getting very much when I was small either, but I do remember tearing off the wrapping paper in such a frenzy- the excitement was almost too much for my little heart to take!! *LOL*
