En tu tierra la vida sigue... ese clima es excepcional. Aquí se fueron las moscas,
mariposas, hormigas y abejas. Está a punto de helar esta noche y se preveen varios dias de niebla;
Tu foto es cálida y llena de vida.
Un abrazo y que paseis unas buenas Navidades, si puede ser con la familia a tu alrededor.
Hasta pronto Jesús:
