Merriment Day 20

Christmas is not just fun and gifts. We know that. We also know the best gift is when we give of ourselves. Whether it is time to make something, time to visit, time to send a note. To me those are the best gifts. In my card group we draw names every year. A few years back, my friend Linda Attanasio drew mine. Imagine my joy when I opened this.
A primitive nativity she had made herself.
A close up! This friend is the opposite of prim and that she did this for me! Certainly makes me Merry.
Thanks for coming Through My Back Door  where life is good.
PS:Let's please continue our prayers for the victims. That includes the shooter's family.
