Dallesport To the editor:
Thank you to the person who took the time to submit our home for The Dalles Chronicle Christmas display map. I don’t think people realize what a difference “an act of kindness” can make.
I had been feeling sad that our family would not be here to enjoy our Christmas lights, wondering if it was worth the effort. In addition, as we age, the whole decorating process has become much more difficult and takes us much longer. We had pretty much decided this would be our last year.
You, our friend, have given us a wonderful gift. We now are already looking forward to next year. What can we add? Will there be a pink pig someplace in the mix? A new manger scene? More deer? Additional lights?
Thank you, our friend, whoever you are. You have helped make our Christmas merrier and brighter.
Larry and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
