Paper tree #10. I saved my favorite for the last, not knowing just how appropriate it would be! There are icycles hanging from the eaves and the trees this morning as the snow begins a slow (we hope) melt. Power was out for a little while this morning, but it came back on in good time and we are finishing up with Christmas preparations.
My sincere wishes for a very Merry Christmas or wonderful celebrations of whatever holiday you celebrate this time of year. It has been a year of great Hope and a year of huge disappointments, but it has been a year that has reminded me that we all need to take care of each other and keep on just doing the best we can.
