Need a Little Christmas
Sunday, December 13, 2009
I really didn't know what I was going to do this year. I didn't feel like decorating. I didn't feel like doing much of anything but sleep. Sleep has been my best friend lately.
But, I went out Friday and bought a new Christmas Tree with the lights already on it. I didn't want to fight the lights with the old tree, I also bought a new tree skirt then I went into the eaves and dragged out the box of ornaments. They were like finding old friends. The angel I colored in kindergarten and mom always insisted on putting on the tree is on my new tree. The different ornaments we all bought throughout the years. My Melvin Merrymouse collection and my cat angel that my best friend bought me after my oldest cat died. One of my neighbors sold his house yesterday and he came by with some ornaments to remember him by. He was a friend of my parents and I have known him forever. As I was decorating the tree, I realised I was enjoying it and I in fact needed it. What I couldn't find were the Christmas doves that mom put on the tree. So I went to the Wild Bird store and picked out a pair of male and female cardinal ornaments to represent both of my parents. They look lovely.
My neighbor from across the street also gave me a Wreath for my Door so I hung that today as well. When all was said and done, it was after dark and I went outside to see the tree from the street. It looks beautiful to me. Simple and beautiful.
December 22nd is when I have my next surgery for the Kidney Stones. What a way to get a week off!
