Glimmering Star

Copyright -Björn Rudberg

It took me a long time to find the perfect Christmas tree, and it was no easy task to get it down to our house through our steep pathway. Watching my wife decorate the tree, made me smile realizing that all the effort I put did not go in vain.

"Dad, we do not have a glimmering star to put on top", my five year old came rushing to me.

"Darling, I have the perfect star for it!"

She and her mother watched as I climbed up the ladder to put our tiny family portrait on top of the tree.

  1. What a great way to put a star in the tree... wonderful

  2. This family has the starring role on the top of the tree.
    That's grand. Randy

  3. I was impressed with this mother's brillance. :)

  4. Lovely Christmas story.

  5. Wonderful way to teach the child that the family is the star.

  6. This is so sugary sweet ... Merry Christmas :-)

  7. That child will never forget decorating the tree that year. Well done.

  8. That's nice. I like the idea of the family portrait as a star. :) Happy holidays~

  9. I like the idea of putting a family picture atop the tree. Just be careful not to break it!

    Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
