Great-grandpa shares long-go memories and puts things treasured into young hands;
Grandfathers and grandsons lean into one another;
a Grandson brings Grandma into his world;
the children ask about the spinning wheel that lives in the corner of the living room and watch in fascinated wonder;
the girls spy the wedding dress in the portrait hanging in the bedroom and wonder ...
yes, she has it stored away on the high shelf in the closet.
I watched through tear-dimmed eyes as years were woven into story and the story became a part of young hearts. Family - drawn together by words and love and memories passed from one generation to the next.
This, too, is Christmas.
