day 19- write about a sweet memory from your past

Since I just rewatched them yesterday…. My sweet memory from the past has to do with Santa Claus. I know I have the best parents… I don’t even have to think about it. When we were kids we would wake up on Christmas Day to videos that Santa existed. It was pretty much magical. I have watched them since I was a child and could never guess who they had play Santa Claus until yesterday… IT WAS MY DAD! It finally clicked that Santa was my daddy!!! Hilights from the movies include my dad climbing out from behind the couch because he saw Santa and running to wake us kids… my mom sleeping on the couch and seeing Santa so she ran to wake up the kids… the year my daddy fell asleep in the rocking chair and Santa put the presents out around him (still do not know who Santa was that year…). How many parents do you know who would take the time to do something like that for their kids? The movies even involved split screen technology (from the 1980’s!) of Santa dissapearing up the chimney and veggies being thrown up for the reindeer. My parents even put Santa whiskers on the cookies and milk and flour foot prints of Santa’s boots near the fire place. I remember childhood always being magical. My parents are creative parents. Everything as a child was an adventure. I hope someday I can be as creative as them so my children’s childhood is just has magical.

Thank You, Mom and Dad!!!

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
