A CHRISTMAS TREE ~ memories on every branch


We just put up our Christmas tree. As I sit staring at all the lights and each ornament, memories just race through my mind. I grew up with a faux silver Christmas tree and a spinning light sitting on the floor shining onto the tree to change the color of said tree from red to blue to green to yellow every couple of seconds.
