I often wonder what an angel looks like, if she is as pretty as we’ve imagined. But if you’ve lost your loved ones, you know that the angel of death has no mercy, and the only certain thing in life is impermanent. So these angels on my Christmas tree have no face, one carrying my mom’s Christmas Memorial Ornament, we all got one and there are 9 ornaments made in memory of her.

This year we talked about getting a live Christmas tree and Lee was looking forward to picking one out, but after reading about the toxic chemicals that are typically used to grow the Christmas tree made me think twice, the thought of getting pesticide residue in our lungs and on our skin made me cringed, unless we decide to go green and buy a tree from a local organic grower and I’m not sure if we’ve any in our area. So green was out of the picture, and we decided to recycle our old Christmas tree, this one was older than Lee.
Lee helped with the decoration and she proudly hung her Turtle Dove that she had made in Kindergarten.
Bo got this tree from a March of Dime auction over 10 years ago, one of the prettiest ’80s country Christmas tree I’ve ever seen, all the decorations came with it, and I believed some are eatable as well.
