Christmas Tree Cards

I made a childhood Christmas tree two weeks ago. And it keep on falling down. Many of my ornaments were broken. So I decided to cut it down and let the peach ornament balls as more prominent colors for my ornaments. And  then I added the Christmas cards hubby and I received.


                The other day I received a Christmas card from the Dias family!! Thanks Dhemz!

            This photo was taken yesterday see the added Christmas cards? And I put a little embellishment
                                               on the basket a purple color ornaments.


And with what happened in the Philippines. And the loss of my close friend this sunset color reminds me that life is so short, that we don't know when is the time we will be gone in this world, that material things is not important. Why I say this, in my conversation with my friend ( the wife) both of us were crying as she told me the ordeal they experienced in the flash flood. I have friends in the city were the flash flood and typhoon lashed out so I asked her about our friends. Does anybody also died or missing? She told me that  one of our friend loses his whole house....but all of my friends and there relatives were fine except my friend's husband who is also my close friend, who died. It bring me to cry more because I REALIZE THERE AND THEN MATERIAL THINGS DOESN'T MATTER. I told her material things that we can see and gain it again but not the life. THE LIFE OF MY CLOSE FRIEND and my FRIENDS husband. And we will never see my friend again. But I still could not ever believe this will happened and I am very sad with what happened. 
                                     To you my friend. May you rest in peace you are always remembered.

  4. I enjoyed your sweet photos of christmas-card-tree and the final scenic photograph. I'm really sorry to read the sentiments you wrote attached to it though. You are right, when all is said and done, 'material' things shouldn't matter anymore.
