Christmas In My House!
Remember my house is 860 square feet.
A husband and wife, two dogs, a cat, and a bird,
my sister brought her four and a greyhound and a little shitzu.
and we had company as well.
It can be a very happy house!
One thing I have learned over the years is to keep a stock on those lint brushes.
As the guests leave the house they are dehaired!
Which brings quite a few more drama episodes all on their own.
My favorite part of Christmas
is putting up the tree.
And then into my box of treasures.
My angel was given to me by my late Aunt Gladys!
She was so special too me.
I also have some old ones from my ex Mother in Law.
Bless her heart..
One of my friends made some oragami ornaments.
Others, angels, a silver first christmas in our new home.
There is not one that as I unwrap them don't bring back memories,
Every one I hold in my hand, a part of a friend, or family member.
Many happy moments!
Sports ornaments for my husband made out of salt cookie dough,
There is nothing fancy about my tree, there is not a theme,
It is just filled with little treasures of love.
And to me it is the most beautiful tree in the world
because of my treasures
and because of the love.
This year I found a little blue tin box,wrote a six page letter to my Dad,
wrapped it in a ribbon, and placed it on the tree.
It was to symbolize that my Dads love is still here with us,
And he has an ornament that is always on the tree!
This is another of my favorite Christmas ornaments,It also was the first Christmas ornament that I bought!
Have fun decorating, we are snowed in so we are going to finish some stuff tomorrow!
I do wish you all a joyous Season, one filled with love and friends and families!
My wish for Christmas is that My Mom will not miss my Dad too much,
May we all reach out to those that are alone, to the unfortunate,
Keep our hearts open to the miracles that might be right in arms reach!
Sometimes we don't find them they find us without us even knowing!
Life is truly amazing!
I hope you all have your very Best Day
