    Merry Christmas!


    I opened the box marked Christmas
    Getting ready to trim the tree
    As I took each ornament out
    It held an old memory.

    There’s a Santa that belonged to Mom
    When she was filled with joy,
    And others made by James
    When he was a little boy.

    There is a crèche painted by Debbie
    So many years ago
    I can still remember how
    It set her face aglow!

    Ornaments old and new
    Bring special memories of
    The love we hold in our hearts
    For those here and up above.

    So at this special time of year
    Even though we are so sad
    Our special memories of each of you
    Make our hearts feel glad


    Hope you like it.
    Gail
    Hugs to all of you!

    Thanks Janelle. I am having such a hard time getting into the spirit. Christmas was Debbie's favorite holiday. Throughout her life she always had a childlike spirit and it especially came out at this time of the year.

    I can't read it cause each time I do it brings tears to my eyes but I like how it came out.

    Hugs to all of you!

    Thanks for your kind comments. It has helped me get in the spirit a little. I made a dozen Christmas cards today. Even bought one Christmas present. Just need to keep going.

    Thanks for your support.

    Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.
