For Christmas I Want
to wiggle my nose or a magic wand
and visit this place again
until I'm as tired as I remember being when these pictures were taken.
I do remember the feeling that I was glad my girls were old enough
to hang the ornaments while I sat there on the couch.
(I also think that I still wear that same navy blue sweatshirt...with a collar under it.
it's my uniform. Some things never change )
