Christmas Tree Week Can Brighten Your Day
This week is Christmas Tree Week. Do you have your tree up yet? We do and I was sitting on the couch looking at it. I noticed all sort of amazing things.
First I noticed all the different ornaments: Washington Redskin, Syracuse Orange and Bobby Labonte. Then I noticed the handmade “I Love Golf” ornament made by a friend that passed away earlier this year. The thing that amazed me the most though…the ornaments made by the kids. The imagination that went into it and remembering how proud they were when they showed it to me.
Something I highly recommend is having ornaments of the kids with their picture on it. I also suggest that you put the year on it as well. It’s amazing to see how much they grow from one year to the next. It’s like a time capsule.
It brings back such memories. I’m sitting on the couch by myself, grinning ear to ear. Thinking of all the great things with the kids. The ornament with Tara holding her little stuffed dog “Spot” and wearing a Santa hat still makes me smile today. If you really want to add a surreal moment, play Christmas music while enjoying your quiet time.
So if you are feeling a little stress that this time of year brings. Take a moment, sit and relax and look at your tree. It’s amazing how your day suddenly gets better.
