This is the only thing in my home that even hints at what time of the year it is.
Just a tabletop tree with a string of dollar store lights, with two angel ornaments, gifts from the funeral home.
And a photo of my parents on their wedding day.
No Santa, holiday cheer or bright lights this year. I couldn’t get myself to drag out the boxes of Christmas decorations that I have upstairs in the hallway closet and sort through all of the memories.
This was the best that I could pull off.
