Christmas Memories

Christmas Memories by Cathy Ulrich

Christmas Memories by Cathy Ulrich

This tree in my home.
An odd tradition,
Yet one that continues
to bring pleasure and
Sweet memories.

Ornaments given and
received over many years.
Symbols of Christmases past.
Symbols of family, friends,
Places and times.

Like the reflection of light
Through crystal,
I pause to reflect on the light
of loved ones who share and
have shared this life with me
in gratitude and joy.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Surprise!

Scuba Weeble by Cathy Ulrich

Scuba Weeble by Cathy Ulrich

This photo includes a little backstory: In November, Madame Weebles created a contest to raise money for Movember. Being extremely camera-shy, she decided to post nine photos of her friends and one of herself and the contest involved guessing which photo was hers. I guessed right and my prize was a Weeble from her extensive collection. Imagine my surprise when I opened the package and found my very own Scuba Weeble! I’m an avid Diver and amateur underwater photographer. It was the best surprise ever. Thank you, Weebs!
