A favorite Christmas story........

The first time I had ever heard this story was while living in Georgia. It is definitely a favorite. As I listen to it I can feel every emotion and see every scene in my mind. I hope you enjoy your ride on "The Train".

It really is the best time of the year Marmee. Too bad it isn't like this all year long!

Thanks for sharing Susie. What's your weather doing today. It's 67 here and raining.

Becky said...

WOW sis! Thank you so much for sharing this story with us here in blogland. I've never heard it before and it is soooo touching! Excuse me while I get a tissue!

Susie said...

Mildred-It's rainy, really foggy and was very cold this a.m.(especially when I was out in it all morning). Right now it is 42 degrees. It's suppose to start warming up the next couple of days tho.

Sister-I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I thought you had heard it. It reminds me so much of when we were little.

Susie said...

Racquel and Beckie-I'm glad you girls enjoyed this story. I think it is really sweet!

Jen said...

This is new to me too.
I smelled the smells and tasted those cookies all over again.
Funny how memories are being created while we do things and don't even really realize it at the time.

Susie, that was so beautiful. Touched my heart...the story and the way it was told...thank you so much!

Susie said...

Jen-Oh I'm glad you hadn't seen it before. I love how descriptive he is. My mom use to make Christmas cookies when we were little that looked like those.

Kanak-I'm glad you enjoyed it! I liked it so much I went out and bought the cd a couple of years ago.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it Daisy. I have really been surprised at how many people have not heard of it.

Loved it, Susie... I had heard it--but it has been years ago. This is my first time to your blog--and I am enjoying it SO much. I was one of Dorothy's award choices --just as you were. You'll have to check out my blog sometime also.
Hugs,
Betsy
