Day 22: Decorating Traditions

All of us have collected decorations to bedeck our homes and trees at Christmas. The most interesting ones, in my opinion, are the ones that have a story.

Like this ornament and musical globe that my dear husband and I received as wedding gifts.

Or these ornaments, sent throughout the years, from dear family and friends.

Decorations I made while in high school, and others that my dear son has made over the years.

Or these stockings and nativity set given to us by my dear mother-in-law.

Each object tells a story of a place in time, and a person so dear to us. Being able to pass these stories onto my son, and hopefully, someday, his children, is what makes putting up the decorations special to me.

I hope everyone is able to share their stories with the ones they love.

You humble me with your generosity of spirit. I'd almost forgotten that I sent you these. They represent some fantastic experiences in Bible country. Gma Sue
