The memories that are made to last…

By Silver Blue

…Continuing with the Christmas in July theme.

From December 1986.

The last time we really had a Christmas tree in my parents’ house.

The last time we had a real tree.

The last time…for a long time…that the season felt special.

As the song goes, “It’s not the presents under the tree, it’s your presence next to me.” Hard to believe we’d lose my grandpa in 1992, dad would have his heart attack in 2000, and we’d lose my grandmothers in 2004 and 2008.

Somehow, the “moment” and “memories” don’t seem a special as they used to.

But this was a memory that was made to last. So much so that I tracked down (on eBay) another angel like what is atop this tree (from my mom’s childhood) and bought it for myself.

Silver Blue, who says… “I am with you… because you remember me.”
