Open you heart at Christmas

And not just for one day

Open your heart at Christmas

Let this beautiful feeling stay.


For caring, generosity and love,

We treasure through the year.

Don’t wait until Christmas

To share it with those you hold dear.

M. Carne


Tomorrow and Friday I will be posting another letter from Grandpa to his family scattered around the world in January of 1945.

    How lovely to see the Christmas photo with some faces that have become familiar to me from reading here.
    Compliments of the Season to you, and thank you, Judy, from across the miles.
