On The Bright Side

I'm trying to think positively tonight.

If I'm sick now, I should feel better by Christmas.

At least I was wise enough to forgo the glass ornaments this year so nothing was broken when the Christmas tree fell down tonight. . . twice.

Eleven degrees below zero is much warmer than twenty-eight degrees below zero.

Having a sore throat keeps me from eating so many sugar cookies.

My kids can always make me smile. (Matthew: "Mom, my stomach hurts. I think I have an affection.")

Nothing is cuter than a three-year-old making a snow angel.

My Charlie Brown tree is rocking the shatterproof ornaments this year because the main tree fell last year too! Feel better soon and enjoy your... heat wave? :o)

Blessings, Carolynn

Oh poor you, and me. (I can't believe I have the 'flu now, less than a week before Christmas, in summer!!!)

Your tree fell down twice in one evening - you beat our record.

Hope you feel better!

Hope you're feeling well soon. And that your tree doesn't fall over again.

Sorry you are sick. Hope you feel better even sooner than Christmas!

I, too, have lived through repeated tree falling experiences due to a husband determined to get the largest tree we can possibly stuff through the door. The once-and-for-all solution? Eyebolts screwed into the wall in inconspicuous places so the tree can be tied in a vertical position (using baler twine). Primitive, but effective.

Hope you're feeling better.

You are so good. Seriously. You took all those things and turned them into good things. I hope you feel better and your tree stays put. Merry Christmas.
