Then you think, If we don't get a tree, my kids will one day tell a therapist..."and then there was the Christmas when mom said we had no room for a tree. It's like she was saying there was no love."

But by the time we got home she was in love with the tree. And that's what it's all about.
Merry Christmas everyone!
