A few days ago, I received an invitation to a Christmas luncheon at the office where I worked before retirement four years ago. It seemed like only a short time ago as I glanced around the familiar rooms and my old office. The woman who replaced me was so happy to meet me and thanked me for keeping all the files in meticulous order. Once the troopers and higher ups walked in and spotted me, it was ‘hi’ and ‘you look great’ and ‘yes, so do you.’
We had so much fun catching up and laughing about past times. The food was everything from fried turkey with all the trimmings, vegetables, cookies, pies and a layer cake. Plenty of water and soft drinks in addition to coffee. There is something special about being with people we enjoy. The happy feelings stay with you long after we leave them. Holidays are the best of times to share our lives with those we care about and help those who can’t help themselves.
