The Christmas cards have been mailed with the just ok annual poem (it didn’t “zing” for me like they sometimes do).
The tree is lovely.
Dr. M got out his Christmas train.
I’ve been making snowflakes (got the idea from this blog).
The gifts are mostly done. There was a bit of a mishap with one of them – it might have to be an Epiphany gift instead of a Christmas gift.
So all in all, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. There have even been angels (check out Dr. M's post - he got some great pictures).
I see your shining faces in my mind’s eye. You’re laughing or maybe you’re standing by the door with a quiet smile. You only live in my heart these days. It’s getting kind of crowded in there. This year, when my heart wants to break with sorrow, I will remember how much you loved Christmas. I will remember how much you loved me. And I’ll kick ole Elvis to the curb!
