An Angel.....and a Very Special Gift

"An angel, robed in spotless white,
Bent down and kissed the sleeping Night.
Night woke to blush; the sprite was gone.
Men saw the blush and called it Dawn." (Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)

I have been so remiss......

This blog stands neglected.....and a response to an incredible giver has gone unspoken.

I was spoiled.....in a very delightful and thoughtful way.

I recieved a package and with great delight, Miss Emma Sage and I opened it to see what was inside. I took pictures [but my digital battery was dead and of coarse there were no batteries to be found.....so we used a disposable 35mm....and you guessed it, it is missing in action.....but when I find it and have the pictures developed, I will share the photographs.]

My giftee gave me the gift that will be celebrated and recalled for the rest of my years, as every December, when the air is crisp and cold and the season of lights is upon us.....I will unpack my Christmas boxes and bring out one-by-one all the angels of delight.

Our box was filled with Angels......

Glass angels,,,,,,,,Silver Angels,,,,,,,,Precious Hand-Made Angels.

An Angle of White with a burgandy heart.........that looked like a glazed cookie to delicious to eat.

Angles with Bells.........

Angles that hung so beautifully on my Christmas Tree.........this year, and for all my Christmas' to come.

Miss Emma Sage was taken back by how many individually wrapped gifts there were.....and for a little girl who just loves to unwrap paper, this was truly the best part for her. She would open and then 'ooooo and Awe' and tell me 'Oh Mommy, how beautiful'.

Thank you so much my secret spoiler..........it was truly a magical and beautiful gift.
