Most people put an angel on top of their Christmas tree. Some put a star but this picture from a Facebook page called "Whisper of the Heart" encapsulates what I feel.
Unwittingly, I've never had an angel on top of my Christmas tree. It's always been a star or a poinsettia.
Now I can take comfort in the fact that my angel is in heaven. It's a lovely thought to have during this lovely Christmas season.
