HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ALL OF US AT THE BURCHFIELD PENNEY!
"The last day of the year—a cold but bright and sunny day, with a film of fluffy snow on the bare ground. Where there are weeds, the snow is not apparent.
A fine Christmas season – all of us more or less well, and happy, a spirit of peace and contentment. [Mary Alice] came home the Sunday before (riding with two boys from Springville) bringing with her a friend who went on to Boston the next day).
The whole family out for Christmas (turkey dinner)—including the new grandson who slept most of the day in his bassinette in the middle room.
This year I seemed to reach some sort of milestone—gone was the acute nostalgia for my boyhood Christmases, and in its place a contemplation, as I lay in bed Christmas Eve, of the miracle of the birth of Christ, of God assuming human form for our salvation. (Something I never thought of as a boy).
Not that all yearnings for past Christmas joys were absent however. Every so often would come a pang of regret for the half-revealed memories of incidents that perhaps never existed."
Charles E. Burchfield, December 31, 1946
