Taking down the tree

December 31, 2010

It’s time to take down the Christmas tree and yet this year I find this so bitter sweet.

Our tree has stood in the same place for 23 years….during those years the ornaments have slowly gotten placed higher and higher on the tree as each year my girls grew to adulthood.

We will be putting our house up for sale soon and I know that with this market that may not mean we won’t be here next Christmas, but I have to prepare my heart for that.

This house has been the home I raised my family and it has been a good home. I have been blessed with many family gatherings in this place…but it’s time to move on.

It’s time to get excited about my home that will gather my grandchildren.

So as the ornaments come down I am smiling….so much of life ahead..we start off walking and learn to run…we’ve only just begun…that was a little Karen Carpenter for all you young folks…
