I recall my parents saying before they went to be with the Lord. . .
that they desired for each of their grandchildren to have a family nativity scene once they had their own families.
They never had a chance to see our sons marry . . .
or to see their darling great grands. .
my beloved and I saw to it this Christmas that each family would have the nativity scene.
This nativity scene may not be put up high on a fireplace mantle. . .
or low under the tree where the prickly needles are. . .
but it will be where it can be reached and handled. .
and when you press the Angel on top of the stable. . it plays "Away in the Manger". .
. . .we are desperately learning the actions.
(and learning not to give a swipe to the shepherds while passing by the table)
Have a wonderful day my friends. . .
today is date day. .
just the two of us. . .
