This past year as I was hanging my ornaments on my Christmas tree, I tried to pick out my most favorite or meaningful ornaments. Wow, that was hard!! I have several favorites but I have one ornament that stood out as my most meaningful.
In the mid 1980's I had a dear friend, Connie Awbrey, that received a diagnosis of cancer. She had three small daughters and a husband. A group of her friends got together and would take turns helping her out during chemotherapy treatments with cooking meals, watching the girls and offering support. It was very tough because we were the same age and I had two small daughters. I just couldn't imagine what she was going through.
For Christmas that year, Connie made each of us a cinnamon dough ornament.
Just remember that some of the smallest and simplest ornaments given with love can become cherished memories.
