Traditions


“It all just seems like it’s passing so very quickly.”
Maybe the tears were for my youth (this is my 30th Christmas) and the fact that I’m grown now. Maybe they were for family members lost and the regret of what could have been.

Or maybe, they aren’t sad at all, for my Cousin Cecily’s two young girls were at their grandmother’s house (my aunt Sharon) this Christmas, and to watch them rip open gifts and squeal with excitement reminded me so clearly of a time when life was simple and things seemed like they would just go on forever.
