The Calm of a Christmas without Drama
I wanted a white tree for my red ornaments--ornaments bought 3 or 4 years ago and never taken out of the packages. The only white tree I could find had multicolored lights on it, so it looked pink when lit...or as I put it, like a rainbow threw up on the tree. The more I have looked at the substitution for which I settled, the more I like the bright aqua tree with not only red, but the touches of green, gold, and blue. I turn on the tree lights, turn out all the others, and sit in the dining nook each night and just enjoy looking, thinking, feeling the calm and the restful peace of it.
Turns out I was mistaken...I needed to see it at least one more time.
