Not a creature was stirring…

Originally published on December 24, 2012 It was the morning of Christmas Eve and once again it didn’t feel like Christmas.  It had been years since I last celebrated Christmas – but I remember it well.  It was in 1983 at my Mom & Dad’s place in Midland, Ontario.  My family always got together to […]
