Christmas Eve –
not a star
but a flashlight
guides the farmer
to the cow and her newborn calf

  1. Tell Carol that her Tanka took me back to Christmas on my aunt and uncle’s farm, and yes, the flashlight led him to and from the barn…and the star led his life. He was a gentle, faithful, hardworking man, and because of this post I remembered him vividly today!
