Every year I say I’m going to change our tree next year.
Every year I say I’m going to get a new tree. A smaller tree.
Every year I say I’m not going to spend two days putting this thing together.
But I don’t want to spend money on a new tree even though a couple of the branches of this one are literally held on with green chenille stems.
So I put it together, turn off the house lights and light the tree.
I fall in love with it and think it’s the best tree I’ve ever decorated.
But next year…
Next year I think I want more of a Handmade tree. More of my own creations.
More in keeping with what I teach, preach, and live.
