Time will tell…

Here is my offering for Bernadette’s quote:

“I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.”

— Gone with the Wind – Margaret Mitchell.

Time will tell

Sending personalized greeting cards,

shopping for little Christmas gifts for family and friends…

I notice that as the years go by Christmas becomes more and more low key.

The plethora of traditional greeting cards to choose from has dwindled,

giving way to people sending emails and text messages to each other,

or maybe it’s because of where I am living right now?

The Christmas cheer is down by several notches,

though we have paraphernalia of decorations hanging here and there

There’s such a wide gap between my childhood Christmas experience

To what is obtainable today.

I must tell you that I certainly miss the old experience and the sentiments,

and can’t even bear to think of what future years would bring…

Will there even be handwritten greeting cards to offer each other?

Time will tell…

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha

When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things – not the great occasions – give off the greatest glow of happiness – Bob Hope
