*** Christmas Memories ~ as a child we went thru some really rough moments after Dad took off with his girl friend, leaving us in the dust. Julie Marie (idyllhours) & I have been sharing some moments & memories of the joy we each had as children. We were thrilled to have nuts & candy & our stockings filled with crayons or pencils. It didn't take much to make us happy. Mother would stay up into the wee hours of the morn sewing special dresses or pinafores or ribbons, sometime even coats ... but the memory that will stick with me forever was the year all we got were barettes for our hair ... I don't recall what my brother got. Mother took us to Berryhill's 5 & 10 store ... Mother had exactly $1 to spend on gifts. We oooooh'd & awwwww'd over the barettes & magically Santa delivered them to us on that crisp, cold exciting Christmas morn. We were tickled with these pretties for our hair. A neighbor girl across the street got everything money could buy ... when we shared our beautiful gifts with Helen Jean, she asked 'is that all you got?' I shall never forget that wonderful moment of pride & joy became instant pain that knifed thru forever ... it hurt to the quick.
Since that time it was one of the factors in changing my life forever in 'giving' to others. I love the warm radiant smiles when I give ... the appreciation that is extended ... a moment of happiness given to another, without strings ... just sheer love & fulfillment in my heart & soul.
