Remembering Christmasses past

"And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
~ Luke 2:9-14

I have six of these little resin angels. My grandmother gave them to me about 7 or 8 years ago. They are all scratched up and most of them only have one wing. However, I can not part with them, because they once belonged to my great grandmother, Deeda. Every time I open up the box of decorations and unwrap them, I have to smile as I think of her and remember the Christmasses we spent with them in Los Angeles when I was a child. She was always so happy, and kind, and so excited to see the children open their presents. I sure do miss her!
