It seems that during the holiday season, more than any other time of year, our thoughts turn to special memories. That’s probably completely normal. It’s also probably normal for many of those memories to be happy and a few to be sad. It’s important for us to remember the people who had such an influence on us, who are a big part of who we turned out to be.
I love to look back over pictures of Christmas as a child, the houses where we used to live, my hair in a pigtail, wearing a romper, practicing those piano scales. Those were simpler times–before life became busy and complicated.
This year as we find our self in the midst of Thanksgiving meals and Christmas celebrations, maybe it would be good if each day we tried to focus our mind on one happy memory–something that can remind us that life is good, and God is on our side, and people care about one another.
What about it? Do you have a happy memory from past holiday seasons? Care to share? I draw one winner from each post’s comment section. If your name is drawn, I’ll send you an autographed paperback book of my choice from my supply closet. If it’s one you already have, you can donate the unsigned copy to your local library or a friend. Our last winner was Janet E.
