  1. I remember my sister asking my two brothers and me to sit by the tree while she read Christmas stories to us and made up stories about Santa. She wore glasses and I still remember seeing the Christmas lights reflect in her gasses as she told the stories. Her love and the closeness she provided is a treasure to hold in my thoughts of Christmas long ago.


    1. So many memories of Christmases Long ago to revisit this time of year. Thank you for sharing a loving memory with me. Sue

A soft place to fall, some poetry, some stories some random thoughts but most of all a place that I hope blesses those who stop by.
