Listening to every heart
Wait, this thread is not over...not by a long shot....
My only birthday wish most every year – is that we put up the tree. In the past it was a real tree, and I would like to have real trees still, but the price they put on something God gave us is horrendous…to say the least. So a few years back I capitulated and have a marvelous albeit fake tree that I love to put up. I can string more lights on it than one could imagine, and it gleams from the inside out with light that I always feel catches at least One Eye….
I haven’t had the opportunity to put up my tree in the last three years. This year, as my one and only birthday gift, it’s going up. It may even contain silver tinsel, a “let’s not make a mess” problem that again, I’ve capitulated to, but this year, I think I shall do so. If family members insist on birthday presents, all I have asked for in the past years is “something for the tree…” and thus, I have various and varied ornaments, sometimes one unique ornament; sometimes a set of four. Some ornaments contain my children’s names…this seems to be a good year to begin making ornaments that contain my grandchildrens’ names…
I have beautiful memories of trees that seemed to glow forever;
And of trees that were of a Snoopy variety…
But always, always,
They were dressed with love, and caring,
Smiles and light…
Reb…it’s so good to see you. Hug ‘em all for me.
