That spot of Christmas in an otherwise dreary woods paused my inner Grinch.
What a great story. I live on a country road and our home is about 300 yards back from the road. Just for fun I am going to hang some Xmas bulbs along the drive. I know it will surprise my husband.
I love this story! Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, but the last few years of being away from my family and my adult son has made me feel a bit grinchy as well. I almost talked myself out of putting up a tree at all this year, but finally had a day of Christmas spirit sneak up on me, and I got it done. I’m glad I did too, because it really brightens my day to have it there, lit up and decorated with my family’s special chosen ornaments.
Sometimes, what is most needed is a good ditch-jumper. :)
