Do you remember, dear reader, two Christmases ago when my big beautiful tree fell flat on its face, ornaments and all? And we (my son) had to wrestle it across the room and tie it to the bannister with twine to keep it upright? Here it is again. More or less. Well, definitely less. This is the top part.
As you know, this has been the year of The Downsize. The tree is a little shorter, and so am I. We hold a million memories anyway.
Our tinsel might be tarnished,
our limbs a bit askew
but we wish a merry Christmas
and peaceful heart to you!
