My Angel

You may of remember from years past I had shown my 
Angel Tree Topper

she has adorned my trees for many many years


I saw her in downtown Greenup at the Western Auto, I just had to have her!
I asked my sweet Dad, and we went up and got her.
It makes me think of the magical way my Dad made Christmas.
1972
there she is!
On top of our tree, I am not sure if that was her first year but a picture from 1970 she is not there.
When I got married and left home, she went with me.
Of all the pictures I have, I do not have a picture of my Dad and I together at Christmas.
But he is in my heart every Christmas and every time I look at the top of my Christmas tree.

Ann, I am glad you still have the special angel. I had an old plastic angel that I got my 1st married Christmas...I have already passed it on to my oldest daughter...she uses it. Makes it even more special. I you stay safe during the bad weather. xoxo,Susie

Oh that story made me cry. Your daddy was a very special man. He may not be with you now, but he will always live in your heart.

Ann- That is a beautiful story. I miss my Dad at Christmas, too. Hardly a day goes by that I don't think of him and he died when I was quite young. This is my 44th Christmas without him. xo Diana

Oh Ann, your posts always touch a chord deep within me. This is such a precious and dear post and wonderful tribute to you and your daddy. It's so clear how sweet and special he was from your words.

My cousin has a very similar angel. She is so well loved that her hair is ridiculous. We call her the Don King Angel.
