Christmas Memories...Reflections

One of my favorite things to do at Christmas is to sit in front of the tree and ponder about my life, Christmas, my Savior and to journal. We got our tree up this year about a week before Thanksgiving but the lights didn’t work. I was pretty bummed after doing so much work and the lights didn’t turn on. Jared found the fuse had blown and replaced it. It lasted 30 minutes or so and blew again. The second time was because the replacement fuse was smaller than the one actually required.

Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the store before leaving to get a fuse. Once we were back after Thanksgiving we made it to the store and found what we needed. The night we fixed the lights I took Benjamin out to the living room and sat in front of the tree with him. I had a moment with him sharing his first night sitting and staring at the tree. It was a very special moment for me, one that I will always remember.

  1. Oh how very precious! We had problems with our lights too. The bottom string didn't work. Fortunated Rudy had the patience to sit there with and tester thing and checked each light bulb until he found the TWO that were burned out and then the magic of the lights was in full effect!!! Oh how I love the lights too! I still go into the front room every night and sit and watch the lights sparkle and flicker as the ornaments turn. I love the peaceful feeling that comes over me. I want it to last forever!
