Throwback Thursday… 1986 and 1987…see the extra little shepherd with her Mickey Mouse? ☺️
This white nativity set was around before I was around… by how many years, I can’t exactly say; I believe Aunt Gael bought it for Grandma …(or was that the set of Revere Ware pots that she got her? I don’t recall the stories exactly, and sadly Aunt Gael is unable to recall either) I set this nativity up in different places, in different homes, but always with the memories of unwrapping them with my brother….
Holiday traditions, and the physical items that sometimes create or support those traditions, also come with the reminders of love and loss… (Grief is the tax on loving people.—wow. )
…..The child said,
“I’ve noticed If one could be home,
they’d be already there.”….
…If you want to arrange it
This world, you can change it
If we could somehow
Make this Christmas thing last
By helping a neighbor
Or even a stranger
To know who needs help,
You need only just ask…
