Christmas gifts from the heart…

IMG_4591The traditional shopping and exchanging of Christmas gifts in our family does not exist  but every once in a blue Christmas moon, I receive something special because someone thought of me when they saw it.  No wrapping paper, no tag, just handed over from the heart with a smile.  Last year, it was an antique mantle from my precious son and daughter-in-law ( it did have a big red bow!). This year, I was surprised with an old, rusted cow bell from my brother-in-law.  Each year, I treat a family member or friend to a performance of the Nutcracker by our local ballet

Gifts from the heart induce endorphins, generate hugs and create meaning and precious memories.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Gingerbread Farm!  Thanks for visiting. Come back, soon.
