Have you ever hauled out your Christmas storage boxes from the attic or basement and opened them to find some treasure you'd forgotten all about? This happened to me a couple of weeks ago when I came across some lovely Christmas items I received from a dear blogging friend last year. Until that moment, I didn't remember I had them and I was happy to renew my acquaintance. It's like Christmas just to open the decorations boxes ... all that ooing and ahhing.
Looking through my blog archives is a little like searching through the tissue in those holiday storage boxes. There are times when I find an old post I've written and, just as with those forgotten ornaments, I'm happy to renew my acquaintance, especially when I discover that the piece is still delightfully readable and I thrill to think I was its author. Include a little ooing and ahhing for good measure.
Today I am sharing such a find with you, and I hope when you click the link below that you will discover a certain gladness in renewing your acquaintance. And, if you have not read it before that you'll be glad there's this chance now. So, without further ado, I present a post from Christmas Past. Please note that the photo above gives a hint as to topic, but I won't say more so there will be...

On that note, I'm wishing you a day of beauty and sweetness.

fun to reread what i posted long ago...now i have few surprises compared to my childhood christmases. Now I'm the giver to surprises...ReplyDelete
Lin, I like that idea you mention about now you're the giver to surprises. Yes, I love being a giver of surprises as well.Delete
I enjoyed reading your post as much today as I did the first time. Happy day to you, my friend!ReplyDelete
I'm glad it was worth a re-visit. Thank you, Sandra!Delete
I enjoyed re-reading this post and it brought back the same memory as the one I wrote about in my comment last year. There's a story there, and perhaps I'll tell it.ReplyDelete
Surprises both received and given are good for the soul.
Lorrie, I was thinking about your comment earlier ... about how reading the post again brought back the same memory today as last year. I would agree, there's a story there, and I do encourage you to tell it. It feels as if there's a dam about to break... and the waterfall of Lorrie's stories will pour forth. Perhaps the season is here...ReplyDelete
Surprises are fun at all ages.ReplyDelete
It was a lovely post to repeat . . . especially as I believe I missed this one! I enjoyed the post and I enjoyed the little conversations in the comments!ReplyDelete
I must have missed your post when it was originally published so I'm glad that you shared it again. I don't peek at gifts meant for me because I like to be surprise.ReplyDelete
Yesterday, we threw a surprise birthday tea for a co-worker who was celebrating a milestone birthday. I did such a good job convincing her that it was a regular tea social that she even brought cookies to the tea. HA!
I DO love reading over old blog posts! You forget so much!ReplyDelete
