It's been a hard week, and I am so thankful for, prayer, dear friends, and precious family who love us...thank you, all of you, for your prayers and love.
It seems that it's getting harder and harder to catch the sunset - wading through the snow and all... ;0) But, I waded out in it...in my slippers...yes, my slippers, to get this shot. So pretty, thank you, Mother Nature!!
The other day my daughter was here helping me put up my tree and get me decorated for Christmas. I was telling her about some of the old ornaments that we found in a bin that was tucked away in the closet, some of the ornaments were my mothers, that I remembered as a child, others were ornaments that I inherited from my step-father, they are very old. Then I opened a box that I had forgotten about - wow, did the Christmas memories just come flooding back . . .
We were poor, like most married couples the first few years they are married, but we made it - you know what they say about living on love. I remember just wanting something new to hang on our tree to make it a little more festive and pretty. One day I was shopping, and I found a cute little kit to make three little felt Christmas tree ornaments. It was on clearance so I bought it, not even knowing if I could get them made before Christmas, but I got them done on Christmas Eve. They were so cute, and I my oldest daughter just loved them. She was about 4 years old at the time, she's now 42. I had almost forgotten about them until I opened up that box of ornaments and there they were, right on top...I was so happy!
Hugs and Love,
