I am enclosing a photo of the creche handmade by Sisters Aggie and Carol over 20 years go. They made it out of breaddough* and Carol puts it up on the mantle every year. I hope you take time to re-enjoy the treasures of your life these days. May your memories be happy ones. May your new year make many more moments to recall with gratitude next Christmas.
*From Clare's Well recipe book p.151
The Sisters are taking more time during these days of Advent to notice what God is doing in our lives. From what I know about Advent as a time to remember the presence of God embodied in creation, taking time to notice sounds like a common sense thing to do. I wish I could tell them all that I notice in snow. Who is blind?
