We arrived home after a very late night drive from Arkansas Sunday night. The Christmas lights were amazing as we drove deep into the night.
I loved seeing my family and church family friends for Christmas. Part of going home is remembering so many family gatherings there, I am thankful for parents who allowed us to know and love our extended families. My Pappy Nunnally was only with us until I was eleven, but I had my Geddie Grandparents until I was in my mid twenties. Pappy came several Christmases to our home in Gurdon, and I remember vividly his arrivals and seeing him as we opened our presents.
Today’s task is to take time to remember memories and get them down on paper so my children can read of my childhood and gather the pictures I do have of Christmas past and tell the events that I remember of those days….while I still remember them!
During busy Christmas days, this fifth day of Christmas what are you doing to bring a smile to your heart?
I giggled this morning as I realized there wasn’t a reason not to use my polka dot mug and fill it with pink hot chocolate….a simple joy already in mmy home…just waiting to be enjoyed. What simple joys are you going to indulge in today?
