Precious Christmas Memories

Two paper Christmas ornaments made so many years ago always find a place on our family Christmas tree.

This one was made when our oldest was in elementary.

Our baby created this Christmas ornament when she was in elementary too. We have to prop him up now, but he always finds a place on our tree.

As a woman of a certain age I am very sentimental. Our Christmas tree has the same decorations each year. We just add one or two each year. Some years we add special moments such as births, graduations or just remembering family and friends.  The decorations go back as far as 1977.

The last third grade class my mom  taught made her this one. She put it on her tree in Longview–now we put it on ours. The words may be faded, but the memories are there forever.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.

  1. Buliding memories is so important. Sometime in the hustle and bustle of ‘living life’ we forget to focus on what is truly important. Thank you for sharing your memories and at the same time reminding us to cherish each special moment.
