a touch of Christmas....


this little touch of Christmas..............................when i went off to college....my mom took a ceramics class to fill some empty hours..............................this was one of her projects....only displayed once...............................................this is the first year i have displayed it myself.............as i unwrapped each piece.......i pictured her holding each one ................a few tears were shed that evening as i thought of how much she loved me.............how much i miss her..........................................................but oh my goodness.........................i am blessed!

My nativity is one that my mother gave to me when I was first married. I treasure it so much as she is now gone. This time of year makes our memories so strong. I miss her most at Christmas. Yours is so lovely.
