Christmas Letters

Posted by berkeleyscot on December 9, 2007

Over the years Christmas letters from family and friends contained news about newborns and eventually children’s success at school.

Later, the children graduated from university and then there were the wedding photos.

Then there was news of grandchildren. But in that time, we didn’t realise that, we too were participating in the ageing process.

We soon will have lived in California for 30 years.  Our memories of our friends are that they are just as they were when we left.

So I’m distressed to learn that those I care for, long-distance, are experiencing health problems, some age related but all unpleasant.

But it’s interesting to realise that in spite of all accidents requiring stitches and all other things medical, that the letters are upbeat and I appreciate the honesty in sharing the truth.  That’s true friendship.

We’re all on Life’s conveyor belt and if we think you are falling off, due to bad baggage handling, we’ll pull you back on.

Because I want your Christmas letter next year!
