Awakenings: Gone, yet ne’er forgotten!

on December 21, 2014

Amid all the festiveness of the holiday season come times of remembrance… Christmas past, family and friends gone but not forgotten. There is an overwhelming sense of sadness that at the same time brings on smiles of the heart. The joy, the laughter, the silliness within the seriousness of the time. With Christmas, there is always music, special music. Some of the melodies have been passed down from generation to generation while new ones hit the scene with the changing times.


Welcome into the Spotlight: Mud, an English glam rock band with their 1974 hit on this day, “Lonely This Christmas.”


Loving memories of those who have passed on are rekindled everyday in music that lives on and on and on…

    Sharla, thanks for a lovely post. Yes, memories of those lost are remembered this season–especially Noelle, who loved Christmas and thought ‘The First Noel’. was writtrn just for her. Visit my blog–I’ve missed you!

  2. Yes, I think Garry feels it even more than I do. He had such a big extended family and almost all of it is gone. We try to be grateful for what we DO have.

    We will always keep the ones in our hearts… the ones who had to leave us – the ones we loved – and mostly on a Holiday like this we remember – and the loss reminds us of the love we feel for them.
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful post, Sharla.
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you! We’ll be “seeing” us again Next year. 😉
