My parents have enjoyed many opportunities to collaborate during 55 years of marriage ~ raising four kids, camping, sailing, hiking the Appalachian trail, hosting parties, gardening, working in the darkroom, canoeing, etc..

Here’s a concrete example of one of their collaborative efforts . . . fingertip towels embroidered by mom on a towel stand built by dad.

Hark! The herald angels sing. “Glory to the new born king!
Peace on Earth and mercy mild. God and sinners reconciled.”
Joyful all ye nations rise. Join the triumph of the skies.
With angelic host proclaim “Christ is born in Bethlehem.”
