I don't take this lightly. I don't write things like bring me a new car or more money. These desires should have more substance to them, something to make our lives or our world a better place. I give it some thought, and I was pleased to see Josh and Jess doing the same this morning. Since my youngest, Zach and his wife Denise, couldn't join us this year, I mailed two paper stars to them. They will (hopefully) write their wishes and return them for me to hang in the tree. And throughout the month of January, anyone who visits The Crooked Little House will be offered a star to write on and hang in the tree. By the end of January, when the last of leaves have dropped, I hope to see a star-studded tree full of hope.
So here's a few pics I thought you might enjoy. It is a lovely way to begin a new year.
Josh always climbs to the highest point to hang his star. Either he doesn't want anyone to see it or he feels he has an advantage with the winds.
Jessica prefers to hang hers on the hill near the empty birdhouse.
Two more stars join the galaxy.
So my friends, stop by and hang your stars for 2016.
