This is, and always has been, the very first ornament I place on the Christmas tree each year. It brings me warm memories every holiday as it was my first Christmas ornament. It was given to my mother and I by my grandmother. Nine years ago, we lost her to cancer, so this special ornament has taken on even greater value for me. Seeing this ornament immediately puts me in the Christmas spirit. It reminds me of all the wonderful holidays I got to spend with my grandma, and it makes me feel as if I am sharing those special memories with her again.
