This evening, as I was driving home from my busy day, this was the scene ahead of me. Sadly, I almost missed it because my mind was so preoccupied. Suddenly I noticed what a gorgeous sunset was before me. I stopped and captured the beauty on this cold, winter evening.
Christmas cards have always been a wonderful part of my Christmas memories. I keep them displayed for weeks after the holiday is over. Each one means so much to me, and represents special people in my life. Fortunately, my dear SIL helped me and my family capture this picture for our Christmas card this year. No small feat considering we had lots of little ones to keep still and focused, but she is a great photographer and she did it.
This is the way I chose to display our cards this year. I took an old wire gate that was painted white and wired little lights around it. With tiny wooden clothes pins I attached each of them. It blesses my heart to stand and look at each card and picture, some with interesting letters attached.
This plaque was done by an artistic friend of mine, as a gift to me. It looks so nice sitting on my white bookshelf. "Tis the season"...and I want to take this time to say a heartfelt thank you to each of you in blogland. Never would I have imagined that I would be so blessed to meet all my wonderful friends through blogging.
My wish for you is time to reflect, time to enjoy and people to share this holiday with.
Merry Christmas to you!
