Jonny's favorite time of year was Christmas. He couldn't wait to get out the tree and adorn it with the red, green, shiny and glittery decorations. Some were homemade, some were gifts from past Christmas...My plan was to decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving, but Jonny always begged me the weekend before...I remember one year he begged and begged, but I thought it was way to early so I said "No". Well the next day I came home from work and he had the whole living room decorated. The tree was placed in front of the window that could be seen from the street by passersby, on the mantel he placed the nativity scene, along with the stockings hung with care. At first I was upset, but then I realized did he do a wonderful job and placed everything exactly the way I would each year.
On the beach at night alone, As the old mother sways her to and fro, singing her husky song, As I watch the bright stars shining—I think a thought of the clef of the universes, and of the future. by Walt Whitman
