But First, Coffee...
So, this is my little tree. My sweet, little tree.
I can tell you where I purchased each of these little treasures. The first one, near Fort Benning on Thanksgiving, 2010, at about 4 am. Yep, Black Friday and the Starbucks was 24-hours! And, that was the last year I was—24-hours, Black Friday, whatever you may call it. I skipped Thanksgiving that year with my Mom and Dad to spend time with my husband and kids before he went overseas. They understood and we celebrated a few days later. I would not have that chance again.
My tree does not have an ornament for 2011. That Christmas, my Mom was not here, and my Dad spent Thanksgiving, Christmas and then New Year’s Eve in the hospital. He never celebrated a holiday without her. I often told/tell myself, God knew he couldn’t handle that. I am sure, I was the one who couldn’t. After all, my then almost 9 year old, actually believed I may not even put up a Christmas. Thank God for kids!
Every year since, I have added a new Starbucks ornament to my tree, sometimes 2, sometimes 3. Maybe because they both loved coffee, or maybe because I just need a sweet, little tree.
