Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! Happy Holidays!

The festive greetings seem louder this year and maybe they even mean more.

Bill and I once again managed to put the tree up and got it covered with memories. I am always so proud that each ornament carries its own story going back so many years.

There are the Hungarian hearts sold to me by a woman on a street in Budapest. It was my first trip to Hungary to see where my father was born.

And look at the smallest decorated glass globes! They are what are left of the very first ornaments we purchased 62 years ago when newly wed. We were so young and just starting our lives as adults.

I love the doggy memories too. One real ostrich egg has our pair of Golden Retrievers painted on, and another is of my brother’s Dalmation. The horses are there too – Martini and Lucy.

The list goes on and the finally the fully dressed tree each year is actually a biography of a family.

That is what Christmas is all about – Past, Present, and Future. So, I am wishing you, my family and friends, good health and happiness and more of the same and lots of great memories in days to come.

I never tire of the sweeping view, especially whilst cooking and standing at the kitchen window.

How blessed we are to have found this place and recognized it as home.

Thirty-two years ago I would hum happily en route to this 20 acre plot where there was no home yet . It was a place in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where we could imagine a future.

The land stayed unspoiled. The house Bill designed sustained us.

And “the future is now.”

Daily Prompt – Back to the Future

A service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future.  To whom would you send something, and what would you write?

I would send copies of my blog books to my great grandchildren and theirs and theirs through any future generations.

The message would be,

“Please read through the history of this one ancestor and the stories of some of your other long-gone relatives who lived so long ago.   Along with their stories, flashes of inspiration and impressions of life, you may begin to feel their dreams and fears, and their hopes for your own future.

The books, composed in the beginning years of spiraling technology,  will hopefully introduce you to the way things were.  And, as you read, please try to determine if life was better then, or if it could be better now as you learn from the secrets of the past.”
