Several years ago I grabbed a new spiral notebook to write the year's Christmas gifts in. The objective being to have a list for the kids to write Thank-yous to those who had given them gifts.
As we continued to use the notebook each year, I added who we had received Christmas Cards from with their addresses, and who we sent Christmas Cards to and their addresses.
Seventeen years later, there are only 3 pages left for this year's records. This simple spiral notebook has become a treasure of memories, a catalyst for remembering each individual Christmas, and a reminder of God's blessing and love in our lives through others' gifts to us.
