Take Pride in Small Achievements

our CHristmas tree Finally finished the paper-chain around the tree. It’s up, it’s beautiful (I guess), and I’m supremely happy. I only have to make a tinfoil star for the top, and that’s really optional. I could buy one at the store just as easily. But—I feel like making one.

That’s my mom and dad’s wedding picture in the background. I sure wish Dad could have been around to see this tree. But I believe in heaven and the afterlife, and I fantasize that he’s looking down from heaven and can see it.

This will be a short post. I’m still whacked out from staying up all night the night before last. Something I will never do again! Twenty-nine is definitely too old to continue to pull all-nighters. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Be proud of the small things you achieve. Cut yourself slack on the things that don’t get done. Be gentle and go easy.

Peace out.

That is such a beautiful peaceful tree. I’ll bet your dad is really proud of you, and happy when he looks down at it.
