I didn't keep the paper
Sunday School ornaments.
I kept one preschool ornament
of my son's fingerprint.
It hangs on the tree in his old room.
My baby who was 3 years old
is now 28!
I kept all the Hallmark ornaments
but the ones dear to my heart
were made a friend.
She cross-stitched their names.
Born in 1982, my baby girl is now 31.
This was made for my baby boy, 3 years later.
These ornaments will forever find a place
on my tree until they are ready to take them home
for their babies to enjoy.
Call me a "sentimental fool."
It's beginning to look like Christmas!
