I finally finished decorating our tree.
I put on some Christmas music and took my time. One moment I was singing along; the next, I would pause and miss having my kids here doing it with me. Then, back to singing again. That's the way it is these days.
It's always a trip down memory lane. As I hung our first Christmas-together ornament, each of our children's first ornaments, and these hearts, I remembered shopping for decorations forty years ago and not having a lot of money. These little hearts, and some red bows, were cute, romantic, and cheap. I bought as many as I could and covered our first tree. Still have about ten or so of each left that I use every year.
