29th anniversary

First Christmas

Today is the 29th anniversary of our landing at JFK from former Czechoslovakia.We headed out into the frozen Midwest for a two-day trip to my parents’ home in Big Rapids, MI.

We arrived on Christmas Eve just in time for the traditional Czech dinner: mushroom soup, fried fish and potato salad.

All that was topped off by mom’s

delicious Christmas desserts.

They had the Christmas tree up and decorated.

I will never forget that first Christmas in the USA.

I am grateful for my parents’ Ella & Vaclav’s help in adjusting to our new life in the USA.

Today, 29 years later we’re all alive and well on our life’s journeys.

Happy holidays to all. May peace prevail on earth.
