The last three years of uncertainty have taught us to be very thankful for family, friends, and relationships. We are back to some semblance of normality this year although the flu season is certainly upon us.
Wishing you all health and happiness during the Christmas season.
My kids stress every year over what to get dad for Christmas. They know that I am an avid antique clock collector and spend my time restoring and repairing antique and vintage clocks. “Is there anything he needs?”.
However, it is the little things I appreciate in my Christmas stocking. Kids, if you want to give me something put a new pair of cloth gloves, a box of toothpicks, cotton swabs, or a paintbrush in my Christmas stocking so I know that you are thinking of me.
Christmas is a time of joy, not of giving, unless the giving is in the form of love and appreciation for friends, family, and colleagues.
So, if you are looking for that special gift for the clock lover in your family remember the simple things.
May this wonderful time of the year touch your heart and the hearts of your loved ones in a special way.
If there is a clock under the tree consider it a timely gift to remind you of days gone by and of happy memories when families got together to celebrate love, and togetherness, to enjoy a feast to remember.
Thank you for all your letters and I hope you understand that at this time it may take a little longer to reply to you.
