Today, I am grateful for useful people, such as roadside assistance mechanics and police officers.
Today, I am grateful for Christmas tree farms, where you can chop down trees that are too big for your house.
Today, I am grateful for boys who still believe and Santas who get it just right.
Today, I am grateful for boxes and boxes of tree decorations and a family who wants to help trim the monstrosity.

for the angel this year!
|Jack was thrilled to stand on a step stool for the first time.|
|See how big that thing is?|
|The air is thin up here...|
|You're never too old to trim a tree!|
Today, I am grateful for a tree that isn't exactly a designer tree. It's a little crooked; the ornaments are a random collection of beautiful works of art, mass-produced baubles, one-of-a-kind kid creations, and totally tacky; the star is a piece of yellow construction paper with gold glitter and a pink pipe-cleaner loop on top; the ornaments are bunched up at Jack height on one side of the tree.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
What are you grateful for today?
