A Christmas Memory circa 1962

Happy holidays to one and all! And Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it.

I wanted to share with you this photo of myself (I'm the little cowboy with the BIG ears) and my Mom, Dad, and big sis Susan that was taken I'm thinking around 1962. I would have been four and I think that looks about right. It's a bittersweet memory--those Christmas mornings speak of so much joy, yet both my parents are now gone. Someone on Facebook pointed out to me how everyone was looking at and smiling at the camera, except for my mom, who was looking at me. I'd never noticed and it was such a touching observation that it made me cry.

So on this Christmas, hold your loved ones close and remember those who've gone ahead of you fondly.
