Over the weekend I got my Christmas tree up! As I was putting up my tree, I felt like I was walking down memory lane!
Ever since I was a little girl, I have received an ornament a year from my parents. So I have a little girl holding a doll that I received when I was a little girl. When I was a teenage I collected Coke Cola items, so I have a couple of those. Plus, I have received some of my mom's old ornaments, those always remind me of my mom's trees from when I was a little girl!
Then there were those single years! I have one of three girls sledding. My parents bought those when us three girls were in our 20s and not married.
Then I have a bride and groom, from the first year we were married. The next year we received at "Parent's to be" stork ornament. Of course we have a couple of "Baby's First Year" from each year the boys were born. And finally last year, we bought a "New home" ornament. We also received a snowman family with a mommy, daddy and two kids.
My tree is filled with all those ornaments that tell the story of my life! We've started the tradition of buying ornaments for our boys and they will also have a story to pass on.
I was also reminded that life is full of seasons! Our life's seasons come and go and even if we feel stuck in a season, just give it some time and it will be a new season.
Maybe you feel like you're never going to get out of the season of being single! Well, just wait, you're season will change!
