Thankful Thursdays

Our tree has been up and running!

Let me tell you, given the year it has been, “rockin’ around the Christmas tree” has never meant so much. I’m so very grateful that we’re getting to do just that. Every moment, every light and every ornament is appreciated ten-fold. Sharing with you here my favorite ornament – one of Mom’s many original hand-crafted creations.

May you, too, be enjoying your seasonal masterpiece and those loved ones around it.

What are you thankful for today?

Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.

“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”
B. Vaughan

“Nothing ever seems too bad, too hard, or too sad when you’ve got a Christmas tree in the living room.”
-Nora Roberts

“Some Christmas tree ornaments do more than glitter and glow, they represent a gift of love given a long time ago.”
-T. Baker

  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family!! Homemade ornaments bring back such precious memories! Thanks for all your posts throughout the year and your pictures too!

  2. Beautiful Christmas ornament made by your dear Mom, Connie. What a beautiful tribute to her.

    One year my Mom brought me a pretty kitchen towel holder made in Honduras, which came with a Christmas Kitchen Towel. I treasure this gift and bring out the towel only at Christmas time. It is so wonderful to pay tributes to our beloved Moms.


  3. Beautiful message and ornament Connie.

    You brought back my mom’s abilities to mind. She was big on her Christmas decorations and she too used to make many ornaments herself. She was very creative, as was your mom.

    Oh how we miss them no? But we smile on the thought of having had them in our lives. They never leave us. So now, I too try to follow the Christmas traditions. It’s nice to keep up with the Christmas Spirit !

  4. Very much agree with the comments. Real love and memories are the best gifts. Nice memory token of your mom. Thankful opportunity for the good you share thru the year. All the best. Merry Christmas to all!
