Usually Christmas gifts are started and finished long before now, but this year everything was pushed a little. Extra out-of-home work (for which I am grateful). Injuries. Illness.
But, it all has been overcome and the last gifts were finished: a book cover, two pair of pajama pants and two more balaclavas. Now, I can relax and just breathe for a while.
My mother made this little doll a long time ago–probably early 80’s. I am more a Nativity Person than a Santa Person, but this decoration has a special place in my heart. And sort of looks like I feel right now.
A blessed Christmas to you all. I am so grateful for the birth of my Savior and all that means to me personally and to the world at large. He is our hope and salvation. Peace on earth, goodwill towards men.
