Treasures come to me through this blog.  I feel rich every time I open a new letter from Katy or Katherine or Babs or Donna or Beth . . .

Today Katy Edwards Newman writes:  Somewhere in the back of my memory, there was a camel in our barn (not surprising considering my mother’s bent). I searched for said camel yesterday in one of the stalls/mangers and lo and behold!! there was not only a camel but Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, a King, a shepherd, a wise man, 2 camels a donkey, some sheep and an angel. I washed their sweet faces with clean snow, shared some of the horses straw bedding and created AWAY IN THE MANGER. What joy!! My mother knew. MERRY CHRISTMAS ELIZABETH EDWARDS!
