As I went through the Christmas
decorations this year, I came across
this miniature tree that hasn't been
out of the box in a long time.
When my daughter was very small she wanted
a tree of her own to decorate. So, we took
a trip to the Ben Franklin dime store and she
picked out a little inexpensive tree.
Every year through her girlhood she
placed this tree on her nightstand and
carefully decorated it.
In the beginning it had few ornaments
and even fewer gifts. Each holiday,
special things were added.
Over the years she asked Santa
for a blue dollhouse, a pony, a puppy
a pink convertible, and peace on earth.
Big Brother added boy toys.
I stitched a tiny tree skirt.
Dad added a red motorcycle
just like the one he owned.
Little did I know that 98 cent tree would
become worth so much more.
I found an old jar just the right size.
I placed it on her old nightstand.
I hope it brings back the
Enjoy the season, make a memory!
