"Christmas is the celebration of the keeping of a promise."
This little tree topping angel has been in our family from the first Christmas after Sherwin and I were married so you know that little angel is over 44 years old. Every year I have on my list to find a new tree topper but so far nothing has been found so this sweet little angel continues to grace the top of the tree. Sherwin is somewhat setimentally attached to that first ornament bought together so it probably will be with us until we no longer need a Christmas tree.
How many of you had a monkey doll when you were a kid? My mother's mother made them and gave them to us for gifts. Good memories of Grandma Bechthold and sitting around her bed all those years ago.
"What is Christmas?
It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present,
hope for the future."
-Agnes M. Pharo
Wishing you all peace in your hearts as you prepare for the loveliest of holidays.
