On this last day of 2014, I am remembering some of the special events of this year. One of the most recent was the pinning ceremony that
we attended for our youngest daughter on December 11th. She graduated from Texas Woman’s University in Houston having earned a
BS degree with a major in nursing. The ceremony was very meaningful, and I was priviledged to get to “pin” her. I am impressed with the
community that she will share with other nurses. Afterwards we celebrated with champagne and dinner with family who were able to attend
We are very proud of her!
And of course Christmas! We were in Dallas this year at our older daughter and son-in-law’s home. Their house was very festive and of
course the grandchildren created excitement. There were 11 of us, 4 grandchildren and 7 adults. Dinner was delicious and comfortably
informal. For our dining entertainment, our oldest grandson read Knock Knock jokes and riddles aloud from his Boys Life magazine. And in
typical fashion the children came and went from the dinner table because the presents under the tree were more interesting. After the presents
were opened and dessert eaten we concluded the evening with dancing by the granddaughters, ages almost- 3 and 19 months. The dancers
were undaunted by our younger grandson’s attempt to blast them with a fancy ray gun that he got earlier as a present. Such good memories!
As the 2015 rapidly approaches, I want to echo my sisters’ resolutions to enjoy friends and family more in the new year!
