I was inspired by a fellow blogger posting remembering all the wonderful Christmas' now and way back. She posted a photo of her family when she was little.
So I dug this one up to remind me of just how wonderful Christmas is...even when we mourn the loss of loved ones, Christmas still draws us to one another and reminds us of the power of family love.
I don't know how my Mom had time to do all the baking and cooking in preparation for Christmas and ALL the festivities and visitors that accompanied the season, have us all dressed in our Sunday bests, and still look spectacular herself. Amazing woman!
Don't ya just love that old lamp?
