For some reason, I am not rushing with decorating this year. I’m really enjoying the unpacking and placing of each item, letting the memories work a peaceful web around me. The boxes with ornaments are around the tree, waiting for my perusal.
The tree is up, and the white lights soothe me into the Christmas realm with rays of calmness and hope. Yes, hope that even with the changes of 2020, the celebration still is centered on the birth of Jesus. More than ever, He is the center of our home.
So, the ornaments dress the tree one at a time as I collect the memories.
…sparkly and glittery
Yes, 50 plus years of memories pour out of the boxes each year. In 2020, I’m giving them extra attention, time to absorb what they represent. Perhaps, you will do the same with your special decorations. There’s something to be gained from not being as busy this year.
