Over breakfast, my daughters and I began discussing when we could put up the Christmas tree. My youngest piped up with excitement in her voice and said “I love remembering the stories of the ornaments!”
Immediately, the three of us began listing our favorite ornaments, how we got them, and what story was attached to them. It’s funny that we didn’t even have to have the ornaments in front of us to remember them!
I’ll admit, decorating the tree for me sometimes can seem more drudgery than fun. I’m so thankful my daughter reminded me of how special this “drudgery” really is.
I hope you and your family enjoy recounting stories (and creating new ones) while you prepare your home in celebration of the birth of our Savior.
