Mostly Wordless Wednesday: Just A $29 Dollar Tree

Just a $29 Christmas tree
Nothing much to write home about
We had a great big one when the ex was still here, pre-lit and gorgeous
But by the following Christmas, it lost half its lights
So the year after, I bought this one
All I could afford on the single-mom salary at the time
Especially if I wanted the kids to have some Christmas
So we put up our homemade and often garish ornaments
And we laughed and laughed while we did
And it felt like Christmas anyway
Maybe more so, because we laughed and loved
It's beautiful
It's all beautiful
