This past year has certainly made us reconsider our priorities.
It has shown that many of us have far too much and that we don’t need as much as we think we do.
And it has also shown us that family and family memories really, really matter.
My sister made this ornament for me that now proudly sits on our tree.
- A button from my grandmother’s button box (she has passed)
- One of my mom’s flowered hankies (she has passed.)
- Ribbon from my sister’s craft box.
Three generations of my family’s women tied together with three knots at the button representing the Father, Son and Holy Ghost – Faith and Hope.
Although the gifts I got this Christmas were lovely and I’m incredibly grateful for them, this is the one that brought an actual tear to my eye. Family and memories – those are the priorities.
