What it is all about

Mo Manning has this image, "In the Manger" which I think gives us the true meaning of Christmas.  I find it precious to see this adorable angel peering in the manger at baby Jesus.  Mo's Challenge this week is for the "The Great Outdoors" but what was the stable, but an outdoor barn.  It was more primitive than the way any or us would want to give birth to our child especially now with these fancy birthing suites we have.  I work at a hospital, and know that they were putting chocolates on the mother's pillow after the birth of the baby just like a hotel, but had to lock up the candy because it was disappearing.  I think Mary wanted warmth and food which isn't too much to ask for.
My second card is another sympathy card for Mom using the colors of the Play Date Cafe.
