I have great memories of walking with my cousin after school to the YMCA or to the library. We both remember having to use the old card files and the Dewey Decimal System to locate a book, carrying a pile to the table for research pre-Google, and putting the actually books back where we got them. I really thought I posted this before but I can’t find it.

Her death was such a shock and I just don’t feel “merry.” Or, that is not what Christmas is really about. I should celebrate Jesus and be grateful for salvation and the gift of eternity, and the time I have and had with my family. I guess you can’t fully appreciate the mountain tops if there are no valleys. Continue reading
