trees for the taking

There’s no tree picking or trimming this year.

The ornaments and decorations are still packed away.

Presents are not part of our holiday.

Cards will once again not be made or sent.

Christmas cheer has not made a dent.

Call us Scrooge if you must.

But we see no importance in creating such a fuss.

Instead, we are thankful each and everyday for the friends that surround us, for the roof over our heads, for the jobs that we have, for those that love us near and far, and most of all, for having found each other.

Christmas may come and go each year, but with each passing day, there is us. Together, through thick and thin.

And for that, I count myself blessed.

  1. I definitely wouldn’t call anyone scrooge for not doing the “traditional” things that comes with the season because it really is about the heart and real meaning of the holiday. That’s why I do the “traditional” things because I want to, not because I “have to”.

      I feel like I’m looked upon as being extremely odd for not doing all those things. People are so judgmental! (Even with things that don’t concern them.) I’m with you, each person should just do what they want.

  2. I like those Christmas blessings.

    Nathan may never let that fly, though.
