Home for the Holidays

Unloading the CarHaving lived away from my home for about 15 years I well remember how it felt to come home for the holidays.  I’ve heard that you can never go back home because everything changes, but I think that must mean moving back permanently because my trips home were always as comforting as anyone could wish for.

So much is involved in having memories . .people, music, aroma’s of food or a special perfume – even the smell of rain or snow.   Such a large part of my life when I was a child seems truly magical to me now –  our family Christmas times hold some of my most special memories.

I can’t say in all honestly that unloading the car and taking all the food, gifts and luggage into my Grandmother’s house was my favorite part.  Now that I’m grown I see how little I did but just have more fun than 10 barrels of monkeys!
