Christmas Mugs

As I sit down to write today, my heart is heavy. Since hearing the news yesterday I haven't been able to stop thinking about the families in Connecticut who have lost loved ones in the massacre. For the town as a whole, I don't know how you cope with something like this.  My sympathy and prayers go to everyone who has been affected by this tragedy in whatever way.  

I've mentioned before that I started buying myself a Christmas mug each year. I thought I'd been doing it longer but it seems like this is only the 3rd year.  The first year it was the white and red one on the left; last year was the red one with the white tree and this year is the Snowman Red Cup mug.  I love it! Perfect shape and size and definitely my favourite at the moment :)   Claire and Emily also got Christmas mugs this year and Norma's mentioned she's going to join in next year.  Looks like this is now a tradition :)



  1. Tragedies like this one are beyond my comprehension. I've been lifting up prayers all day long, and like you, don't know how families and a community can cope with such violence and death.

  2. Such a terrible prayers are with them as well.
    Love your mugs....I have quite a collection of christmas mugs as well.

  3. I can't begin to understand how that town is feeling, I think every mother in the world is feeling their pain.
    On a brighter note, I see I'm not the only one to have started a Christmas mug/glasses tradition! Love that cheeky snowman.

  4. Yes, I'm with you in feeling such heartbreak for all those families involved in the tragic events this week x
