  1. My love and I have been celebrating Christmases for 49 years and you are so right. They are continually evolving but it is so nice to be happy with whatever fate brings. So often we have decided that whatever is different will be very good. Thank you for a very nicely written post with some great photos.

  2. Dave, you brought tears to my yeas with your words. I was just talking to my 84 year old Mom about this very topic of change in traditions tonight. She is not accepting of life’s cycle and how we move along the cycle of life and how it changes the dynamics in our lives and so, has struggled with finding happiness. She has not been able to do what you accomplished sitting in your recliner, being grateful for where you are in life, what you have been able to enjoy, and be satisfied internally with the beautiful memories of the past and willing to accept the experiences of the future no matter what form they may take. You, my friend, have captured one of the great secrets of life’s happiness while sitting in your recliner. Merry Christmas to you my dear, old, friend.
