Love the sentiments and family memories present in this poem. It flows so well and is beautiful to read. Makes me very nostalgic for Christmases past when everyone was still home for Christmas.
What a precious memory - told in a very precious way. Gave me warm fuzzies. :)

This is one of those wonderful poems you read and at the end you inhale deeply and exhale a peaceful sigh . . . with a smile. Beautiful, just beautiful.
