"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

Christmas is.....

Special cards from friends and family...

 My grandma's crucifix and my mother's bell...

Cutter in the kitchen helping me make cookies...

Nature's unexpected gift after the rain...

 The color red...

Being greeted by the locals...

And feeling well enough to take a walk... I'm so thankful.
