DAY 25.....

~ MERRY CHRISTMAS ~
Day 25 has arrived!!

I want to thank each and every one of you for following me throughout my years here on this little slice of cyber-space. I cannot begin to tell you how much joy you all bring me!
I am blessed beyond measure...

On this day...
Let us pray for peace.
Peace in our world.
Peace in our hearts.
Peace in our minds.
Peace to our neighbors.
Peace.
It starts with me.
It starts with you.
Peace.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Our tree...
~ a story of our family life ~ 
from top to bottom it is filled with over 200 cross stitched ornaments and over 200 other ornaments either purchased or handmade by one of my family members. 
Our tree is laden with nearly 500 ornaments.
