God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Memories of a Little Girl at Christmas
I've told my Christmas memories here before, but there is one thing that just came to mind this morning. This posting is really good for me...it brings back so many memories I had forgotten. There was a treat that I enjoyed that was sold at Walgreen's. When we were shopping, sometimes my Mom would treat me to a little bottle of malted milk tablets called Horlick's. I would suck on the tablets and it tasted like a malted milk in my mouth. They lasted a long time. Horlick's were sent to our troops during WWII as an energy booster. I loved these little tablets and would beg for them when we went shopping. For several years these bottles of malted milk flavored tablets were under my Christmas tree.
Well, that's enough memories for today. I just can't help looking back. It seems that with very little we had wonderful Christmas's. Simple ones ...full of family and love and little treats.
Joe enjoyed the Sound of Music so much last week, that he bought the DVD of Julie Andrew's rendition. He lit a fire in the fireplace last night... and with only the Christmas lights on...we ate chocolate pudding with whipped cream and watched this movie. Joe for the first time and me watching one of my favorite movies over again. It was a wonderful evening...
