Why Christmas trees are like fifty year-old women

Christmas trees are like fifty year-old women,
because they look best in dim light.


 Use just enough light to see the character,
and just enough darkness to soften the, uh, missing glitter.

Believe me, once that first laugh line appears,
you become an expert in the benefits of lighting.
Not that I would know that, personally.
I’m still 29 years old.

 But I hope your face is laden with laugh lines.
Because that means you are spending most of your time smiling.

 Just like that Christmas tree laden with imperfect ornaments,
you are a delight to behold, no matter how bright the light.
Yes, I’m feeling mushy and loving today, because of you.
Thank you for spending time with me over the holidays!

Our Christmas mantle


Wishing you a wonderful Christmas.
See you next week!

My laugh lines go deep. I used to hate them but then I realized I must be very blessed to have had so many opportunities to smile and laugh that it made a lasting impression on my face. 🙂
Have a Merry Christmas my friend!!!!

I definitely look better (and feel better about myself) in dim light. I like to think of it as my mid life glow! Unfortunately I haven’t been able to read your book yet but I’m trying to get the time. On 4 Jan. we take our youngest to University in Ohio. It’s a 6 hour plane ride and a 3 hour drive. I’m hoping your book will make the travel pleasurable, so I’m saving it for that. I can’t wait! Have a joyous, healthy, prosperous New Year full of Peace. Blessings, Tia

There is one major difference between Christmas trees and fifty-year old women: Christmas trees are only brought out once a year. Fifty-year old women should be out year-round.
