“Christmas…that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance…a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.”    ~ Augusta E Rundell

A day to think of everything we have ever loved….

That is how I feel as I hang each ornament on the tree-each one has a story-a memory that I hold dear.  I love the nostalgic feel of the wooden ornaments-each painted by a family member through the years.  My mind goes to the places each souvenir ornament represents.  I think of my children, their children and the times spent around the table making ornaments-some carrying memories of decades ago.  My Christmas tree truly does make me think of everything we have ever loved…
