“Memories light the corners of my mind,
Misty water-colored memories of the way we were.”
I am celebrating the ghost of Christmas past. I went for my walk the other morning and came upon a home that had its windows done up with glass wax stencils.
” When I wore a younger woman’s clothes”, our Christmas decorating always began with Glass Wax and the stencils. Seeing this window made all the memories rush back in of doings the windows, putting red ribbon around the front posts so that they looked like candy canes, stringing popcorn and cranberries and watching the Charlie Brown Christmas Special. For a brief moment, the ghost of Christmas past transported me back in time and I saw my three little boys laughing and filled to the brim with the excitement and anticipation of Christmas.
