It’s the day after Christmas and…
- All the gifts are unwrapped – and probably a few returned
- The holiday music is packed away until next year
- And Santa Claus has found his way back to the North Pole
It’s time to take a deep breath and think about your holidays – the good, the bad and the ugly. Hopefully you’ll find a lot more good than the other two.
It’s no secret – I love this time of year! And for many reasons. One of them is because I always come away with such amusing and amazing stories. Just think about it for a moment and I’m sure you’ll discover many of your own.
Was there something someone said – or didn’t say.
Something they did? Or didn’t do???
A recipe that went wrong? A dog that knocked over the Christmas tree? A child who screamed with joy at the simplest of pleasures – usually the box that your well thought out gift came in.
Take some time to write down these stories, or record them. Make your story come to life by describing all the twists and turns. Be the star of your own story and take us along on your journey.
Just imagine what a gift this will be for someone else, especially someone who loves you endlessly. I would do anything to hear my father’s stories in his own voice; to read my mother’s stories in her own handwriting. What a precious gift that would be.
Imagine the possibilities and warmth you can bring into someone’s heart. So take a moment now, heat up some of that leftover eggnog, and start writing or recording. You’ll be amazed at what you can create.
