At the age of 81, Jessie Lee Brown-Foveaux, born in 1899, wrote her memoirs. It was originally intended just for her family, but happily they realized what they had and published it so we could all enjoy it.
Below is an excerpt from Any Given Day, ©1979, in which she recounts her favorite Christmas memory. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did:
This one grows on me each time I hear it. Aren’t the bells magical?
“I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending.” ~Fred Rogers (via JulesOfNature)
