New England Christmas, a gift from my brother many years ago

Putting away my Christmas decorations is always a bit sad for me. Each of these has meaning and memories, and putting them away means the season is finished– and it may be awhile before the house is filled with family once again. TRUST reminds me that each season is beautiful in its own unique way, and I have much to look forward to, with hope.
