Mytwosentences 89

Each year, at the back corner in the garage, he would carefully rummage through a tall and teetering stack of slightly compressed cardboard boxes searching for that special little Christmas display.
It was the first year without him, so an eternally grateful family found within themselves a rejuvenating sentimental bond which lit their undying tradition for the nonce and future generations.

  1. Damn it, I was already feeling sentimental after listening to the Pogues and Christie MacColl sing Fairytail of New York and then I read your beautiful post. You brought a tear to my eye with the beginning of your second sentence. Merry Christmas to you and yours πŸ™‚

  3. very lovely words, especially during the holidays. Every year as I pull out my decorations and prepare for the holiday, I am brought back in time with the memories of Christmases long ago –as a child, then with my children and with my grandchildren.
