Memories Hope Children Reflection Christmas










Christmastime brings hope for the the coming year, joy to children and children at heart and a time for reflection of seasons past. Sometimes in the midst of the preparations and anticipation of Christmas Morning we forget that this Season also carries with it pain for some...lost loved ones, health issues or financial worries that don't disappear simply because it is Christmas.

It is my hope that on Christmas morning each may find a bit of hope...the first glance of that light at the end of the tunnel and the security of knowing that our past loved ones are here with us.

For the children of all the followers of the blog...I hope you find that specially wrapped gift under the tree from Santa, for the children at heart....it is my hope you find peace and renewal. For the elderly...know that your time on this earth is cherished by all that surround you and may the birthday we celebrate be a reminder of the ultimate promise of a second chance given to all of us.

Merry Christmas to all and thanks for your friendship and kindness you have shown me over the last two years.

(By the way...Santa in the last picture may be someone you know...perhaps the person writing this post!)

Dan, Karen, Zach and Scooter
