Favorite part of the early morning is a quiet house softly lit by a sparkly Christmas tree

Andrea Robinson :My favorite part of the early morning is a quiet house softly lit by a sparkly Christmas tree. And good coffee is always a plus. We have never had a perfectly matching Christmas tree. All these ornaments are a collection over the years mainly from my Nana. She had a tradition that every Christmas Eve she would give us grandkids and her kids a special ornament. She would spend months looking for the perfect ones. This started years and years before I was even born.

This tree is 40 plus years in the making. And that little white and red carriage is the very first one I received from her. 40 years old 🥹😭

This tree makes me think of those long, deep traditions and carried on all the years she lived and this tree always makes me smile to think of her and my Mom and all the beautiful Christmases we shared together.
And last Christmas my brother continued the tradition and buys the ornaments for all of us. 🥹 How did we get so lucky to have him?
Anyway, Sometimes I just can’t comprehend Heaven. And early in the morning is when I seem to think of all that’s to come and what it will be like and my mind is just in awe and filled with hopeful anticipation. I am so grateful for the gift of Jesus so long ago because He made the way for us. God looked down and said, I love them more than they’ll ever know and came to be with us. 🥹And that fills me with more joy than I ever knew existed.
And one sweet day, we will all be together again.
I hope the next couple days are filled with stillness, peace and joy that can’t be explained. And softy lit living rooms and laughter and love and more traditions too.
I sure love you all.
