This tugs at my heart strings. ❤ ❤ A painful tale.
Aww, thank you for your kind comments. I’m glad it made an impression and thanks for stopping by the Cow Pasture. I always appreciate feedback and meeting new people. I look forward to more conversations.
I think we have treasured memories of Christmas and for me each Christmas builds on those memories.
So true and I believe building traditions, no matter how small, leave a wonderful legacy of love and memories to those we love, especially the children. Thank you for your kind comments and for stopping by the Cow Pasture. I hope to hear more from you whenever you visit.
