Obviously you wouldn’t expect that we wouldn’t have a Christmas tree that has been used, right? Well, we went a step further and definitely won’t disappoint because our Christmas tree has been rescued from the garbage. A few years ago, after Christmas my mother was driving around town and saw that someone threw out a Christmas tree. She has this habit of pulling things out of the garbage (only things that someone else may use!) and tucked it away in her attic for me.
The next time she came to visit, she brought the tree, and I ended up assembling it in the middle of February. Thankfully, all the branches were there. We ended up having a beautiful, free Christmas tree. It disgusts me to think that someone was going to toss a perfectly good tree in the landfill!
All of the ornaments on our tree are the ones that my mother has saved for me throughout the years. It’s really neat to decorate our tree because I have so many memories surrounding the ornaments. It is such a great gift that she’s given me. I’m thankful for my free Christmas tree and for the ornaments from my mother. It works for me!
