We all have those special ornaments that really mean something special to us.
As each grandchild came into our lives I would buy a special ornament for our tree in honor of them. We have 10 of the grandchildren ornaments.
I have three other ornaments that are really special. One year my mother who is a very talented artist painted us four ornaments. Alas, we lost one to an accident. I guard the remaining three very carefully.
I have two of my mother’s s paintings hanging in my home. I have had numerous complements about the paintings. At Christmas I have three more of her paintings hanging on my tree. These ornaments remind me of an old fashioned Christmas.
We get so busy with just life in general. These ornaments remind me that it’s ok to slow down a bit and enjoy old fashioned Christmas traditions.
