Christmas can be a difficult season when you are dealing with chronic pain and illness.
I have come to realize it is important decorate, even if it is only a few cards and ribbons.
There have been times when I felt like why bother... "Bah! Humbug!"
I live alone in a small apartment...no one's going to see it anyway. Then I had to realize I am going to see it...and I am important too!
I am grateful for this little tree someone gave me. I may not have much, nor have a lot of energy to decorate, but I do enjoy this reminder of the season.
