Oh Christmas Tree

I wanted to put this post up last night, but because of the nature of the Christmas holidays, I wasn't able to, but I just have to show off this year's tree.

I admit that it looks a little bare in daylight...


But at night, it is magical:



Before I sign off, I want to ask that you please think of/pray for my friend Helen, who lost her husband in a car accident yesterday. She's about to enter a massive battle, as the accident has triggered a serious illness that she had when she was younger.

This really got me thinking, as we forget how fortunate we are to have everyone who is sharing Christmas with us. So if you haven't yet, go hug them and tell them you love them.

*HUUUUUUUUUUUUG!*

I love you.

Merry Christmas.

I like the tree; it's different.

Sorry for your friend.

Oh poor dear. She's good to have a friend like you who can comfort her in tough times.

Your tree doesn't need to look amazing. You have summer. Sunshine, gentle breezes, men walking shirtless everywhere, warm long nights...I'm so jealous. I would never put up a tree with such things everywhere.

Let me guess...you're probably eating Christmas dinner outside under a porch or something, right?

I'm so jealous. So so jealous.

My friend lost his mom last week. It's so sad that so many people lose relatives so close to christmas.
