One year as a child, we were just given an old pioneer house (we had lived in one bedroom prior and a tent before that) and a family gifted us their entire Christmas. We got socks, clothes, blankets, toys, and food. And for my mom, a small budget to buy a real tree and ornaments. I can't help but become overwhelmed of the memory even as a seasoned adult many years later. My heart swells with humility and appreciation of that unknown family years ago. My mother bought several ornaments but one of my favorite was a large metal shiny ball with the Earth depicted in blue and gold. Two perfect ribbons adorned the top with a beautiful bird. This ornament reminds me of that childhood memory and ornament. May we share a little more, and help bring peace on Earth.
