I bought a Christmas Tree!! The kids kept asking me, "Are we celebrating Xmas this year?" They asked the same thing last year. You told me to do it - you said because it was "FUN!" I hemmed and hawed and twiddled my thumbs and as I walked through Walmart today I said to myself, this is a memory I want to give them.
So for my kids, I bought a tree. It's a fake one - I figure next year I'll (ahem) put it outside the front door and get a REAL one for inside... but it's a beginning! A new beginning . . . Now if I can only get past the thought, "Who's gonna come by and visit?"
