Wishing you a Light Touched Christmas
… they discovered a spider family living in the branches of their humble Christmas tree and decided to let them be.
Early the next morning,
they woke up
and saw the grateful spiders had spun…
magical glittery garlands all throughout the Christmas tree’s branches.
And when they opened the windows,
their hearts filled with gratitude and joy
for this unexpected gift,
the first rays of sunlight touched the webs
and turned them into what looked every bit as precious
as silver and gold...
Merry Christmas… and if you need a bit of extra light today please know that I am lighting a candle for you.
