One of my favorite Christmas tree ornaments?
I have them all over my tree.
When my Grams moved out of her apartment to move in with my aunt for the last few months of her life, I was looking through things that were left behind.
I found a box of Christmas ornaments, and lots of these were inside.
They were the prize.
They are pieces of a bedspread my great-grandmother made and presented to her daughter, my Grandma Vera, on her wedding day in 1940.
I think about them as I look at the tree.
I feel conscious of my mothers that have gone before.
I feel grateful for their talents and gifts.
I remember them.
