Earlier today our neighbors were over and we were talking serious issues -their 30-year old daughter has stage four liver cancer. It’s such a crushing blow – a beautiful young woman, married with a one year old son, facing life and death decisions. One of their favorite things is when my tree is all lit, they can see it in all its glory.
The neighbors said he thought we were away because they noticed the tree wasn’t lit for the last couple of days and I explained that the lights were all screwed up because of a faulty wire. They said how much they will miss it, especially tonight and tomorrow as their whole family is gathered.
For the heck of it, about an hour ago I decided to turn on what strands did work – and what do you know – the whole tree lit. I mean, isn’t that some kind of sign?? I think so.
Merry Christmas to one and all. May your day be joyous and bright and may all your Christmas dreams come true.
