I challenged my dt members do use this image in a lo,card,or altered item,and already I have one dt member who did it already,,and I wanted to share the story she told about it,its sad,happy and heartfelt,thanks Denise for sharing it with us and I truely loved the story behind it. The Pin:
This Pin has a great story behind it.
When I was a little girl
my mommom would wear this pin on the label of her coat
every Christmas Season.
She would sit me on her lap,so I could stare at its beauty.
I thought it was the most beautiful thing I ever seen.
After she passed,I thought life would never be the same.
She was my other half and she is gone.
As Christmas approached, I was still deeply saddened.
I didn't think that Christmas would be a happy holiday again.
Two days before Christmas Eve, I received a package from my father.
It had gifts for the kids and me inside.
As my daughter and I unpacked it
There was a small gold box that said Open Now on it
As I opened it,I recognized it instantly.
It was my mommom pin!
My dad knew how much I loved that pin and wanted me to know she
was still with me always.
Needless to say it brightened my day and my Christmas!
Knowing that I can have her near me every holiday from then on out.
