merry christmas


The light of the Christmas star to you
The warmth of home and hearth to you
The cheer and good will of friends to you
The hope of a childlike heart to you
The joy of a thousand angels to you
The love of the Son and God's peace to you.

Much love, willow ~~xx

  54. Her fingers ripped the gift paper apart with a kind of urgency as she flung cascades of ribbon to the ground.
    It was Willow's favourite time of year and recycling was not a consideration today!
