and peace in 2013
something about the long, dark nights
and short, cold days
heighten my appreciation
for family and friends.
This walnut Santa was a gift
from my 6-year-old sister
...some years ago
it's just a walnut with some cotton glued on...
but, it's my favorite tree ornament.
i am grateful for a 2012 well-spent
...and hopeful for 2013
