I took this picture of a Christmas ornament from my childhood that I call The Little Lady Mouse. Right now she is sitting outside of Miss Hickory's cabin and I think they have become friends. I have decided not to return this sweet mouse to the ornament box, but instead to let her stay out and enjoy life as a little mouse friend to Miss Hickory. She reminds me of my mother, who I always miss even more at Christmas, and Miss Hickory could use a friend. Couldn't we all?
