Our three lovely granddaughters came over to decorate the Christmas tree this week. By the time they arrived the tree was up. The spicy scent of pine needles filled the room. And the cardboard box full of Christmas decorations, which we have accumulated over the years, had been lifted down from a high cupboard.
Time has flown. It only seems like it was yesterday when they were pre -schoolers and loved helping us to hang their homemade Christmas decorations on the tree. Now they’re teenagers so we can step aside and let them take charge.
