Merry Imperfect Christmas

This Christmas tree is in my foyer.  It's about 15 feet tall and is pre-lit.  A couple days after we put it up we realized that there is a section (upper center) that did not light or is no longer lit. Oh well.  It is our imperfect christmas tree.  There was no way we were going to take everything off and play with each light until it lit up.  We will worry about that next year.  

Sometimes everything does not go as planned.  This Christmas, especially, the nation is depressed as a whole, for many reasons.  We are emotionally spent.  
I am going to call my tree a poetic representation of that. 

We are together.  
Everyone can't say that we have our families in our homes right now.
All our children
Our siblings
 and if we are lucky, our parents.  

So my foyer tree, the first thing people see when they enter our homes are imperfect. 
But our family tree, and our family room is warm, cozy, and pretty darn nice, just like our family. 

And so with that, I say to you
Merry Imperfect Christmas.
