With children grown and at a distance, decorating the tree was a solitary activity this year. It was not sad though, as I made it almost a pilgrimage into the past. As I pulled ornaments out of the box, less all my children's special ornaments which have been boxed up for their own trees, I took time to give thanks for special times and happy memories. I have ornaments that have been given to me by friends and family, ornaments from some of my travels, and ornaments that I have made through the years. There is so much to be grateful for and it blesses me to take time to express and feel that gratitude.

I hope that decorating your own tree will bring back many fond memories and feelings of gratitude for all the blessings in your life. May your time around your tree this year be one of peace and joy.
