Memories of December 24th 1972

December 24th 1972
Tom and I celebrated our first Christmas Eve as a married couple, We had very little money so instead of exchanging gifts we bought a few things for a special picnic under our little 2 foot Christmas tree. Salami, smoked cheese, crackers & olives were served on special plates on top of a warm fuzzy blanket. With the lights twinkling and soft Christmas music playing in the background we talked, laughed and enjoyed our time together. It was the first of what would become an annual event for just the 2 of us. After our sons were born we were so busy that there were times that we didn’t get to our private picnic until the soft glow of Christmas morning light began to rise but we never missed having that special time together.
Every year I still enjoy a few bites of each while remembering the many Christmas eve picnics we spent together before his death. I am grateful for each & every magical moment we had
under the twinkling lights.
Thank you Lord for the precious memories of a love that still echoes through time. I am so blessed.
