“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to my home for another look at what I have done..This year we donated our big tree and half the ornaments to a needy family. The new tree is small but works for us. Very easy for me to put up. After Christmas I will go though the totes again and see if I can part with some more. So many memories, but with all the family gone, it can be very sad. The memories are in my heart, and some other family can make their own now.
I had a wreath that was getting a little sad looking, so I remove all the decoration from it. Then I added some ribbon (left over from another project), and tied some silver mugs and ladle to it. The ladle and cups came from another garage sale. My husband like how it looks over the fireplace.
I did keep some of the old ornaments that belonged to my Grandparents, and my parents. This year I placed them on this silver tray, another garage sale find. This is sitting on the table in front of the couch. Quick and easy. Come back tomorrow for a little more Christmas from my house!

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
