Our Christmas Bells
These crocheted bells have graced our tree 24 Christmases. They are our wedding bells, crochetted for me by the lovely lady who made our cake as a gift for us. They not only remind me of our wedding - such a happy day- they remind me of Miss Lucille, a sweet, talented lady, a special dear friend of my Mama.
As we approach our quarter century anniversary, we find many friends and family members who celebrated with us back then are no longer with us. Miss Lucille, already elderly at our wedding, is one of them. All our grandparents, my Father-in-law, several aunts and uncles, friends. When we look our wedding pictures, we point them out - look! there's Nanny, there's Dad, there's Uncle Willis. I'm reminded to appreciate dear loved ones while we have them.
