A few years ago, Maddie came home from school with a little package for me..she was so excited. It was one of those "School Creations." She said that I could open it right away or I could wait until Christmas morning. We discussed it..and decided together that all gifts should wait until Christmas morning.
Every year when I open the Christmas Ornament container the smell of cinnamon greets me and I am reminded of the big smile she had on her face that day. How proudly she presented her gift, and the ornament that she made especially for me.
I have many ornaments, and I mean many..enough to decorate several trees. I collect Christmas Ornaments..however this one holds a very special place in my heart and upon the tree.
Perhaps you would like to make a memory for your tree.
