I am Blessed to have a friend who is large and strong and kind, who is happy to help when called in exchange for a couple cups of coffee and conversation. I called him when I found “the Christmas tree,” you know the one, the one you have to have and for the right price. Yes, believe it or not, it was in this lot that I found my 11-foot beauty for $39.99!!
Of course, my friend tried to talk me into a smaller one, as he was the one that was going to have to lift into his truck and help me get up my stairs and into its stand.
When I first found it though I had seen the beginning of a bird’s nest inside its middle branches, and I was sure that was God's sign to me that this was my tree!! My friend did try to move the stack of sticks and twigs into a smaller tree, but I was already in love, so he gave in to the fact I wasn't going to look at any others and dutifully loaded into the back of his truck.
I know I am biased, but isn't it the most beautiful tree you've ever seen...I know, I know, you probably think you have the best tree. But you would have a difficult time convincing me of that! Now onto the lights!! Oh, my the house smells so wonderful.
How lucky am I that this the view from my desk?
I'll be back soon!! I have been such a busy elf, that I barely know what to share with you next! I have more decorating to do!!
Did you see it over there on the table? I swear my heart and eyes are full.
Many Blessings to you all!!
