Dear Active Rain Friends,
I've been working on a growing collection of serendipities for my children, who are beginning to arrive for the weekend from Maryland and Virginia. Some are posted in the Serendipity group. Far more are in a thick folder - copies of emails that remind me ot them, letters and emails to people who were involved to help me be sure I'm remembering accurately, hand-written notes, various documents, etc. - not chronological and not organized, but stories I think are worth telling. I'm trying to get them all into one document, then I'll sort them, edit - I don't know what I'll finally do, but they have given me a lot of pleasure.
I'm supposed to be working on the last-minute preparations for family dinner today, but things are pretty much under control so I took a few minutes to be sure the few I've put on Active Rain are in the main collection.
I came across this Christmas one, which I entitled "Makingi People Smile" from a while back and wanted to share it again - appropriate for several reasons - holiday travel, encouragement, Christmas. Wherever you and your family are and whatever your travel plans, I hope all travel safely and have a wonderful holiday.
I appreciate those of you who have encouraged me and who have shared your stories with me.
Have a Merry Christmas and a great new year.
