The crocheted hat was made and given to me by my grandmother, Lucia, one year. It was a pretty big deal because she had more than 20 granddaughters to make hats for. As I recall, she made mittens for the boys, another 20 or so. I don't think we all got them in the same year either, so it was special when your turn came up. My extended family is large on both sides, I tried to add up all my first cousins and think it's around 92.
I love the clearing energy of fresh garland and simple lights. I love the house still and ready for everyone to come over. And I love to remember that we, all of us, light up each other's lives. I know that each person who stops by to read this web log shines a little light on mine. As do all you whose blogs I visit.
Happy weekending! xo
