|My Christmas Tree|
Despite being sick and suddenly having no income Christmas was wonderful. I think it was because we went into it with no expectations. We knew there wouldn't be a big party. We knew there wouldn't be any presents. So we were happy when we got a little extra money from plowing and could go out and buy a few things. We were happy when we got to have a wonderful dinner. We were happy that I felt well on Christmas day. We were happy when we went on a drive to look at the neighborhood Christmas lights. We were happy when friends came over and made us a big turkey dinner because I was too sick to cook. We were happy when a neighbor sent over a homemade GF cake. As my husband says "its the simple things" that bring real joy to our lives.
