Today is Show and Tell
MY story is about my dad, now in Heaven.
I can remember MANY years after
we were done decorating our tree.
my dad would make a comment.
It was something like:
"I think a tree would just look good with lights and ICICLES"
I remember this comment being said YEAR after YEAR
Now...I know most people hate this icicle strand stuff and I have to admit
I have not used it for years,,,,,my mom would try to get us to carefully
lay each strand...draping it on the tree vs..throwing it on in bunches.
This year, has been a year that I have REALLY missed
MY PARENTS, and Younger brother.
So...this year...I did what my dad always wanted to try.
The pictures do not do justice of how beautiful
my little tree looks...with just lights, ICICLES and a star.
It is so sparkily...and SIMPLE
and done in memory of a Father's comments
