It’s time for my holiday wish for you, my stamping friends!
The past three days I have been looking back at Cards of Christmas Past. Today’s post features what may be my favorite card of them all. Although it was heavily distressed, the snowflakes seemed to take on a glow of their own. Pearls adorned their centers, and a beautiful bow was the finishing touch. I would like to think that I still had this beauty tucked away somewhere, but sadly it was sent off to someone, a name which I do not recall. I would like to think that that they loved it as much as I did, and that it is tucked away among their mementos.
Christmas this year will be different here at the Schach house. Gone are the dogs who have been such a huge part of my life.
My heart is warmed by memories of Christmases past and the memories of those who enriched and blessed my life. But I also rejoice in those who share my life now.

These three brighten each and every day with their antics, and fill my heart with joy.
Often at this time of year my thoughts turn to my childhood and growing up on the farm. Although we were poor in terms of material goods, we were rich in those things which are truly valuable…family and friends. Christmases past were not about the presents or the tree. They were about family. Grandmas and grandpas; aunts, uncles and cousins; my mother, my father and sister and brothers — all would join together during the holidays, sharing in a fellowship of love. Although most of those who shared these memories with me live on only in my heart, I realize that I am still blessed with a wonderful family of friends – my stamping friends – whom I have met through the years. We share. We care. We form alliances and relationships. We inspire. We encourage. We laugh together. We cry together. From my heart to yours, here is my holiday wish for you: I wish you a blessed holiday season and the happiest of New Years! May all your wishes come true!
