Today I finally decided to take down the tree,
and store my ornaments for another year.
But before I do, I want to show you
some of my favorite treasures.
Forever loved will be the ornaments
of my childhood that hung from our
family tree. Losing Mom, I'll treasure
These are porcelain hummingbird ornaments
I collected from Bradford Exchange,
I've had these rocking horses for some time, and
hope to collect more in the future.
These two peacocks are from my nieces,
it started out as a joke several years ago,
but when they bought these for me this year
I have to say I really quite love them!
What is a tree without birds?
This gorgeous hummingbird is from
my niece Robyn. It's so beautiful, isn't it?
These are just some of my snowmen.
And these crystals are from my son Chad.
I love how they catch the light on the tree,
and of course he knows my love
Now the tree is packed away, and I already
look forward to next Christmas, when
they can be displayed again,
hopefully under better circumstances.
