Little Ornaments from my Tree and a lovely poem about Christmas
I received this card from my neighbor Cindy and I thought it was so lovely that I put it into my tree
I picked this out one year because it was so cute and the bell actually rings-nice for Christmas to have a bell ringer that is so cute!
A good friend that moved away long ago gave me this ornament she made about 12 years ago. I think of her fondly each time I unwrap it to hang.
Molly sent me this cherry ornament this year and I love it! Isn't it cool? I have some smaller glass cherries but nothing like this one.
Everyone who knows me knows that my most favorite collection in the world is my Christmas ornaments. I have been collecting for years and most every one of them remind me of a friend, a happening or a family member who made it (like my kids or my kids spouses). The ornament below is only one of a set that my friend Sandy from San Diego gave me. I take them out every year and think of her.
IF YOU LOOK FOR ME AT CHRISTMAS
You won't need a special star- I am no longer just in Bethlehem.
I am right there where you are.
You may not be aware of ME amid the celebrations-
You'll have to look beyond the stores and all of the decorations.
But if you take a moment from your list of things to do
And listen to your heart, you'll find
I am waiting there for you.
You're the one I want to be with, you're the reason that I came,
And you'll find ME in the stillness
as I 'm whispering your name
