Our Christmas tree is very personal, nostalgic, and sentimental to my children.
My daughter has since moved to her dad’s and she thought she had lost some ornaments this year. She was so upset, and I was surprised to hear her reaction to this. She was explaining to her boyfriend that her ornaments were one thing that represented something she and I did each year, something that I always gave her and they symbolized a bond between us. They were real things that made her feel like she held each year in her hand and she could remember a year we went through a divorce, a year that we bought a new house, etc.
It made me cry to know that they really meant that much to her. Luckily we were able to find all but one. I would encourage any one to take the time to collect an ornament each year. Before you know it, you have a tree full of meaningful year markers that make your tree very special.
