I hope everyone had a nice day, no matter how you celebrate the holidays. One of the things I did to celebrate was to share the love and memories on a tree for Danielle, in our beach room. I think of it as her room and now it is my room, so it is our room.
I found a prelit tree with pinecones, simple but nice. I made christmas cards using photos of her and her friends and family and printed them card stock. I hung those on the tree and yesterday I found two hanging signs, one says Believe and one for Joy. I turned it on, on Christmas eve and it will stay lit till midnight tonight, my gift to her this Christmas. I also wrote a little poem to her, not the best literary piece, but it came from the heart.
I made a special gift for you,
a little Christmas tree,
Filled with family, friends and love
and all our memories.
May you see the bright shining light,
as you celebrate Christmas in Heaven tonight.
Love you and miss you,
and this I do pray,
to be with us in spirit,
