|My fireplace and Christmas Tree|
I remember looking at my grandparent's fireplace and hoping to grow up and have a house with a fireplace. Now I have my grandparent's fireplace. Mine is a small humble house but to me it is so beautiful. I feel blessed to call this place my very own home.
Now as time has moved on this house is quiet. With the passing of my Grandparents we no longer gather here to celebrate. 2014 has marked the passing of many family members; Uncle Greg, Uncle RJ, Uncle Joe, Aunt Ann my cousin Kenny--and then there is the loss of friends and I reflect on this year and pray that the next keeps us and our loved ones safe.
Memories shouldn't make you sad--and in this case it doesn't. I like reliving my childhood memories and walking from room to room reflecting on a past that is now a part of my present and maybe even my own grandchildren's future.
