I got most of the Christmas stuff out this afternoon—- and out of all the Christmas decorations we have, this $4 Charlie Brown tree purchased from Ollie’s is probably my favorite.
I’m not quite sure what it is about this little tree, but there is a simplicity to it that makes me stop and smile. A reminder to slow down and pause. A slight calm within the “storm”. I don’t know.
Maybe it’s because it reminds me of Christmas Eve as a child; reading the leather bound red-edged bible with my family before going to bed. Or maybe it’s because my dad still lights up when he does his sermon on Linus reciting Luke chapter 2. Or maybe it’s because when my Aiden watches Charlie Brown Christmas, he smiles at the TV in a way that is so pure and loving.
But yeah, long story short- I love this little tree.
Thanks for hanging through a sappy-non-Sabrina-like post. But this is pretty much me too……….. & I’m done.
