REMEMBERING WHERE WE BEEN


Decorating the Christmas tree is always an exercise in remembrance.  When we go on special vacations, I try to buy something for the tree to remind us of that trip, or that place where we once lived.  Here are a few:

University of Missouri




Disney World



Scotland



Where No Man Has Gone Before--oh wait!  Not yet.

ALL I NEED ARE SIMPLE LITTLE THINGS


I keep a magic Mood Lifter Rock on the windowsill in my kitchen.  I found it in our driveway.

When the rock is dry, it doesn't look like much.



But when I need to be reminded of the wonders of the world, I only have to make the rock wet to bring out the magic in it.  This is what I see:
