Wednesday 12/17 - A TREE!
I must admit this is not my tree, but I'm here to report that my $40 tree is now clothed in "selected" ornaments. Daughter is with her Dad this evening so I spent the evening decorating the tree. It's smaller than any tree we've ever had so I chose only the ornaments I love the most.
There are ones that my Dad gave my Mom (engraved angels with her name on it) as well as some of their special ones that I inherited. Many of them hold memories from my childhood and of them. Then there are the ones made by our kids - most people have a selection of these. We have White House issue ornaments collected as gifts from my brother who worked in the administration years ago. Another collection is an ornament for each year steveroni played in the Living Christmas Tree. Each one is themed for the show presented that year with his name, LCT, and the year on it. And then there are my personal favorites bought over the years.
I am not quite finished with the tree. I have tinsel to add before it will be complete. Once that's done, I'll try to get a good picture of it to post.
I'm enjoying my time with Daughter. I'm tired. She keeps me hopping, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I am at peace and am sharing it with you.
Love and prayers to all of you,
