E’re widening chasm of league and year
That isolates from all once dear,
Time moves on, and so must we
Allow the past to be set free,
But never let the memories part
From within the boundaries of the heart!
(R Weisser, Christmas 2014)
Christmas for me has changed over the years, but the spirit lives within my heart and burns as bright as it ever has.
I have been blessed with a wonderful family, good friends, and all the material trappings of comfort!
And although Christmas for me as an adult has always been a day for looking back in a Dickensian sort of way, I still look forward with eager anticipation to those Christmases yet to come.
Each day is a gift. Every Christmas is a treasure.
I am proud to receive it!
