TRUTHFUL THANKFUL THURSDAY

Today’s story is about the truth that surrounds my love for Christmas trees. First, as you know from previous stories, I love Christmas. Honestly, I believe I received the Christmas gene from both of my parents but more so from my mother. Although I decorated a few trees before Mom passed, the number has doubled and tripled since her passing […]
