In all the scurry of the getting-ready and the time-is-getting-near, in the flush of seeing-to and looking over, there's been a special request for a re-play of a little post from a few years ago.  

Amidst these hectic days, these glowing nights of light and gleam, these quiet times of reflection,  perhaps THIS is what I need most of all. 

I hope you all wonderful days ahead, filled with a childhood sense of joy and anticipation.

I'm so glad you shared this story again, Rachel. Not only does it make me smile, it inspires me, too. Our grandchildren are coming to visit today, and I look forward to "finding and keeping" lots of little "sweet-memories-in-the-making."

I've told this story to so many people. A laugh and a lesson all in one. Something you are quite adept at, my dear!

Rachel, I count you among my many blessings.

We'll catch up soon.♥♥♥

Hello Rachel, I can't go to bed without wishing you a wonderful 2013. Your post is so sweet and your story is delightful. I hope your Christmas was as special as you are.

We arrived home after Christmas from our trip to Europe. We had a wonderful time. The sights were amazing and we would love to go again. A different place though. It is good to be home where our heart is.

We quietly celebrated the New Year but tomorrow my sisters and NC family will be here for dinner. A small crowd of 15. Fun times.

Happy New Year dear Rachel,
Blessings for 2013 with love,

Missing you, Rachel ... hope all of you are well and off to a happy and peaceful New Year.

Good morning Rachel, I am sitting here thinking about you and I came over to see if you have posted. I see that you haven't and now I am worried. I pray that you and your family are all well my dear friend. Maybe you have just been enjoying a nice break.

Happy 2013 to you and yours.
Love, Jeanne
