Ghosts of Christmas Past (2)

All In The Family...





Keely made this little angel in Art class when she was in 2nd or 3rd grade and gave it to me. The design was pressed into a thin sheet of art foam. Then color (crayon) was used to reveal the design. The finished product was framed in a recycled Christmas card. Keely always groans when I display it, but I like it. I imagine that the happy smile of the angel reflects the feelings of little Keely as she anticipated Christmas and prepared this little gift for her mother.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
