So Now You’re 62
I had lunch with several golden girl friends today. Not an unusual occurrence since we all attend a writing group. The subject of Christmas trees came up. I guess this is another downsize situation in our lives.
All of us raised children, enjoyed Christmas traditions-including the big decorated Christmas tree.
One friend purchased a table tree and put five of the hundred ornaments she has stored away on the tree. The homemade ones made by her kids.
Another friend purchased a ceramic tree that lights up and sits in her apartment window. I purchased a five foot tall skinny version with lights already on and added beads and an angel ornament my best friend gave me on the top.
I imagine there are more of you out there than not who have downsized Christmas. We enjoy Christmas with our families, friends. Christmas movies, music, lights are high on our list. Most of us thank God for the beautiful memories of the Christmases of our lives.
We maybe even enjoy a little downsizing of Christmas: less work, less stress, more love!
