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.
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.

Our hospital Music Therapy department and Pastoral Care team joined together to create a Thanksgiving experience for staff and patients. A professional cellist offered deep resonate tones of music through the main entrance hall for an hour two days before Thanksgiving, while the scent of cinnamon, lemon, ginger and honey filled the air. After the musical event, the Thanksgiving Tree was moved to a special table outside the Chapel. Branches and die-cut leaves gave people the opportunity to create a Thanksgiving Tree filled with their intentions. By Thanksgiving day, the branches were covered with expressions of gratitude, prayers, memories, anticipation.
