Sophia & her babydoll lamp & family room

A lovely morning at home with our grown children.

Then a short trip to see nephews & their families.

There, beautiful decorations, children galore & lots of of Christmas joy.

What a great day.

Dove of Peace

Beautiful dove of peace to some.

To me, a reminder of my mother, gone twenty years.

The hostess, the warm heart of the family,

Who always adorned our Christmas Tree with birds.

Merry Christmas, Mom.

A Cup of Comfort Helps

Whether it’s tea or coffee, curling up on the couch with a warm cup of something yummy helps when it’s cold and damp outside.

Home for the Holidays…..

Being invited into friends’ homes is such a blessing.

Hospitality means so much more than gifts, especially when people are feeling lonely or have had major changes in their lives.
Last night, my holiday celebration began with two small gatherings in friends’ homes, and it was lovely.  A relaxed time together with friends, no pressure to impress one another, just hanging out & enjoying good food & beverages, conversation, music, and some dancing.

The light and warmth of love

surrounded our gatherings.

May you have many blessings this holiday season as well.

Daily Photo Challenge: Imitation as Flattery

Daily Photo Challenge: Imitation as Flattery

photo embellished with Windows Paint © ASMcClain

I love this metal wall decor at my friend’s house. It’s flat, one color and sits above the kitchen table. Every time I see it, I think of it as a large canvas that needs to be colored in. So I took a picture & colored it in on my computer. I may print it off and put it on a card for Christmas from our family to hers. Imitation is a form of flattery, right?

The Cheerful Guardian

The Cheerful Guardian

(photo © ASMcClain)

Weathered by years, standing 12 feet tall
The Guardian makes us smile
A sign of good cheer, with doll-like cheeks
We can celebrate a little, like children
And for a moment, forget that we are adults.
