Here is a wonderful gift from my twin girls, 7. They heard me saying over the last month how much I needed a pin cushion! I was always going to make one, but never got around to it. So thoughtful.
The Christmas Rose
A sign from heaven within garden grows
One bloom as if 'twere fastened all of light
Blossoming in the depth of winter's night
The crown of all the flowers- The Christmas Rose.
