  • People and the things we love (horses, dogs, cats , etc) who have departed will always live in our hearts. They also watch over us and try to guide us. I can always feel my grandma around me---and every now and then I hear "TRACY!" and know that I have crossed a line (this happens often by the way). I always miss her at the holidays because after grandpa died that is when she came to visit. I have yet to put up the "Chanukkah bush" this year. Oh how she loved the lights and to see her ornaments on my tree.

    They all live in our hearts. Merry Christmas Bonnie and Family! Great blog as always.

  • Thank you Bonnie, for sharing your wonderful Christmas memory, you have a gift. I remember your dad and his wonderful smile! You are blessed to have a wonderful family and all those wonderful memories. I have been blessed to and want to share this. It was when I was a kid growing up on the ranch that one Christmas Eve we just knew we heard "his" reindeer on "our" roof!And now, as an adult and a mom to have a precious memory of my boys seeing Santa (Bill W.)at grandma and grandpa's house one Christmas Eve. To see their faces and expressions of excitement...or fear, shock and disbelief of what and or who they were seeing, still makes me giggle.

    Thank you for sharing your heart warming stories keep them coming.

    By the way, tonight was our first snowfall of the season. It was beautiful to see, those great big brilliant white snowflakes gently falling. It seemed more magical if you will, because it was thru the brightly lit parking lot that made it so pretty..they just floated gently and whisfully downward and gave me a cheerful peacefulness I hope to not soon foreget.

  • Thank you everyone. I get a little sad this time of year, so it is a struggle to keep positive.

    Bonnie, I too feel alot of sadness this time of year. So many Christmases with my sister, and now this is the 6th year that we'll be without her. I've learned that it is more than OK to smile and be happy ...she would want that.

    Losing my daughter early in life also mad it hard for me to see Joys.... but I braved my way thru the first years, and now the Joys are abundant...have been for years. At times, it's bittersweet, .... just have to love who we love, and experience the Joys while we can.

    Be Joyful, and welcome the memories..
