Merry Christmas, everyone!

Merry Christmas, everyone! My favorite ornament on my tree originally belonged to my great-grandmother Ora Belle. She started college before women could vote! She was one of the first women to attend a brand new college in Tennessee that accepted women – very rare in that day. She was intelligent and literate. Imagine how much changed during her lifetime! Her husband was in WWI and her son, Joe, served in WWII and Korea. She also had two daughters, Jane and Nancy – Jane was my grandmother.
