As Christmas Day approaches I spend my days re-living memories, enjoying new memory-making making moments, marveling at how all the years have become woven together. I still have children at home to remind of how things happened and when, the other children are a phone call (or text) away when I need their input as well. Big Sigh. I do get melancholy this time of year! Are you finding joy and blessing and encouragement during these glorious, hectic days? That’s the reason for our Encouraging Hearts & Home blog hop every Thursday!
This week, the posts I’m featuring are:
- Homemade Window Clings because it was the most viewed post last week (and extra exciting since this was one of my own posts!)
- A Tiny Christmas Memory Tree because I am in a similar season of life, with children grown and starting out in life, children still at home growing all too quickly, and grandchildren coming along giving hope for the future.
- Christmas Caroling Memories because Christmas caroling was our very first date, 36 years ago.
- Christmas Snow Storm in Vermont because every year for 30 years our children have wished for a white Christmas.
And Now, for This Week’s Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!
