I believe in angels and collect the ones with red hair.
Michelle gave me one before she even knew I collected them.
Leisa who owns Black Sheep Woolens. She has tiny delicate stitches hand embroidered on her top and little bendy legs.
Kris. And each one reminds me of how much I am loved by so many people around me.
From Lori's elegant addition topping the tree, to the most eclectic one hanging from a lower branch; each Christmas since losing my girl...these red-haired angels make it just a bit easier to bear the very thought of another Christmas without Jocie.
Today I added this innocent and childlike angel...in memory of twenty little angels from Connecticut that abruptly and sadly found their way to heaven last Friday morning. My heart aches and heaves for their Mommies and Daddies.
