Nostalgia and Christmas

Today we put up our Christmas tree.

As I was unpacking ornaments, I found this one:

I bought it from the Christmas ornament store in Victoria, BC when we were there for our FET transfer last January. I always buy a new ornament whenever I travel. Even though it  wasn’t out first time to Victoria, I knew I had to get this ornament. It reminded me of the socks MLACs bought for me which I wore during the transfer. It was meant to signify the hope we had going into that transfer for bringing home our rainbow baby.

It brought tears to my eyes to find the ornament. I’m so grateful for all of the blessings we have received this year – especially for the fact that Wyatt is here.

He doesn’t enjoy trimming the tree as much as I do. 😀

  2. A really lovely post. What a fabulous reminder of the miracle journey you’ve been through each year you unpack your Christmas decorations.
