Christmas Treasures


Grandma’s Glasses

A little boy said to a playmate, “Do you know what I want for Christmas?  I want  glasses just like Grandma wears. She must have a special kind because she can see much more than most people.

“She can see when folks are hungry or tired or sorry, and she can even see what’ll make them feel better. She can see how to fix a lot of things to have fun with, and she can see what a feller meant to do, even if he didn’t do it right. She can see when a feller is about to cry and she can see what to do to make him feel better.

“I asked her one day how she could see so good, and she said it was the way she learned to look at things as she got older. So I want a pair of glasses just like Grandma’s so I can see good, too.”




I love nativity scenes ~ the stable, the critters, and the dear people that were chosen to welcome the Christ child.




Our Christmas tree holds a collection of warm family memories from years gone by and many treasured handmade ornaments.




A beautiful variety of Christmas cards from family and friends is another of my favorite Christmas treasures.  This following picture reminds me of our farm.



Christmas is a time when we feel so loved, and it is a special time to pass that love around to others.


Penny, waiting by her Christmas mailbox.  Is the mailman coming yet?
