December 13th, the home of a woman who works on our church and my friend burned to the ground. She, her husband and three boys lost everything. The entire church has been helping her set up a new home. A member of the church donated a condo they have been trying to sell. Helping someone who lost everything gives you a new perspective on Christmas.
She has great faith and really has been an inspiration to all that know her. Thankfully, her family will be at my home for Christmas.
I appreciate everything that I have; my faith, family, friends, this country and lastly, a home that is filled with love and beautiful things collected over the 25 years of marriage. I have a few more pictures of my decorations.
The baby Jesus
The hutch in my kitchen
The Christmas Tree
This is one of my favorite ornaments, because my husband and I are like two peas in a pod.
This is the very first ornament that we bought as a family. My daughter reminds me of this angel every year.
And yes, the very Christmassy Star Wars ornament.
Or better than that, the Wicked Witch of the West
A very cute mouse eating a cookie.
Have a Merry Christmas, I will be delivering 28 cookie bags and will post pictures.
