Memories have already formed of another Christmas Eve spent with some of the family and then; moments and hours are passed and past and exist now in essence only or in captured images of lights and movements…sweet and bittersweet, hazy reflections of those who were and were not with us for whatever temporary or forever reason.
And we joined in that happiness and looked closely at the present and the past and marveled in the new moments shared, and hoped for fond memories again to populate those future Christmas Eves with like moments and reflections…
…of when we sat with happy faces and recalled the unceasing movements of our little ones and their ever wonder at what we have learned is the spirit of Christmas, the things that are ours in moments and time when we cherish what we have together…
…and hope for that continued peace and happiness for those Christmases yet to come.
That is a pretty Christmas tree!.
Our Christmas is already coming to close. It is almost midnight now. WE had a lovely celebration at the Church last nite, and had a good dinner with our usual gang of friends and family.

Why, thank you! We do enjoy our simple tree…used to have it loaded with ornaments, but this is less busy and prettier somehow.
It’s nice to hear that you had such a nice evening with your family and friends at church and dinner last night…participating in the beauty of Christmas. 🙂
