Absolutely exquisite, Rebecca, and what a handsome, grown-up son you have now. These pictures and your words are priceless.


As the Season of Light approaches and the new dawn paints the sky with colors that could only belong there, I send you a wish for good health, contentment and may you walk in the Light always, surrounded by the fragrance that brings the brightest and sweetest memories to life.

I loved the story of your son and the key!! My boys are grown now too so I miss the magic. I remember my past when I was 12 or so - and I found out there was no Santa - I was devastated. I guess that is why I am always searching for miracles and magic to this very day - and have found it over and over.....Happy Holidays!!


Chili peppers and it!
Sending you wishes for a very
Merry Christmas!

I too love that heady scent of pine, it always says Christmas season to me. lovely post!

Adriana Esqueda

Your words clung to my heart as a beautiful memory. I savored every minute of your post.
Have a wonderful Merry Christmas!


Oh rebecca,
I am here at work and somehow, magically was able to find you and this beautiful story of Christmas past and present. I felt my own spirit traveling on a journey through time, visiting all the hopeful and blessed Christmases that you and Adrian have spent together. Keys are symbolic of so many things and treasure chests of evergreen scented memories that hold our heart's hopes and bind us together in love through the generations are priceless. Your story of the elderly couple's frail voices reminds me of Dylan Thomas's "A Child's Christmas in Wales", one of my favorite stories. Merry Christmas to you dear. Thank you for always keeping the magic of believing alive and well here.
Much Love,


Just this morning I read "The Little Tree" by ee cummings to classes of 2nd graders.
Thank you for sharing the perfect scent of pine and your lovely memories.

This post kept me spellbound as I scrolled down and through it. So beautiful, Rebecca. Your son is so handsome and his little boy spirit seems eternal. Thank you for sharing this story of Christmas past with us. Thank you. The images will stick with me for a long time.


What a beautiful story Rebecca! Sometimes things are just perfect aren't they? Happy Christmas to you and your family! xx


Thank you Rebecca for such beautiful words and tender memories they brought to me. Your son, like ours, has grown to have his own life and the memories are more precious. Merry Christmas
