More than a Tree

 It really is much more than a skinny, lopsided Christmas tree...

 This is a hand made snowflake my great grandmother made. 
It is the first on the tree & the last off the tree. 
This tree is a reminder of those who have passed.

  
A star made by my grandma. 
It's one of many she has made over the years.
This tree is a reminder of those who are far away.


 Matt gave me this ornament for my birthday many years ago.
We walked along the historic streets of an old, old town.
We found a little shop & I found this ornament.
This tree is a reminder of good times gone by.

 My aunt gave us Mickey. He is holding a clock that says 1999.
We chuckle when we see it.
This tree is a reminder to laugh.

 This is our Snow Monster, from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
It has always been one of my favorite Christmas specials.
This tree is a reminder to see the world through a child's eyes.

But most importantly, this tree is a reminder to rejoice...

...to honor...


...and to remember the Reason for the season.
