Bringing Home The Tree



"Christmas--that magic blanket that wraps itself about us,
that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance.
It may weave a spell of nostalgia.
Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer,
but always it will be a day of remembrance
--a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved."


~ Augusta E. Rundell

Your verse and picture led me to remember (and miss) my sheepdog. Wish he were here to help us fetch our tree this year. Jim

I have memories of bringing home the tree in a tractor drawn cart! And of the December when we were gathering our holly, running cedar and pine for decorating and I cut my leg with Dad's double bladed axe! So long ago so fresh in my memory!

Merry Christmas Jo!
