It's a Wonderful Life

Today I was reminded of how I am blessed. 
While we decorated the tree we watched this movie. It"s one of my all time favourites. And Mike's too.

Chilly, rainy days, like today, are precious. Conversations with Mom. Spending the afternoon cuddled up next to Mike under a home made quilt, watching an old black and white movie for the hundredth time.  A hot cup of peppermint tea with honey and a candle burning.  A homely little, make-do tree.  Kids home for dinner. 

These Santas were on the tree in Mike's childhood home. 

The true value in these old ornaments is the connection they have to Mike's Mom, who passed away years ago, and his story book childhood, that made him the man that I adore today.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
