When we rang in 2012 at our annual New Years Eve Party we never thought for a minute we would have the year we did. A cancer diagnosis,hysterectomy surgery, IP port surgery when it came back cance r, power port installation, 6 rounds of chemo, power port removal and NED status.. Wow...
Through it all my husband was my rock. He was at every treatment holding my hand when I needed it, helping me to bed when I was dizzy and my blood pressure was tanking, constantly making sure I had what I needed before I even knew I needed it.
Since things got back to normal I have been trying to think of something nice to do for him. I tried hard to get tickets to Bruce Springsteen when he came to town not long ago to surprise him but that didn't happen.
Well this year he asked if we could decorate the tree with the old style c5 lights this year. I said suuuuure. Then the question of tinsel came up... I can't tell you how much I HATE tinsel. He wanted to put tinsle on the tree. So.... our tree has tinsel. I never imagined how happy this would make him.
He has been talking for years about wanting one of those ceramic christmas trees with the lights stuck through the holes. They were huge in the early 80's. I have looked everywhere and when I find one it is cheesy.
Well... I have decided to make one for him. I go to the cermaic place in town today to make his tree. I am NOT a crafty person so this is taking me way out of my comfort zone but this is my say of saying thank you..Thank you for taking care of me, thank you for loving me through it and thank you for being the man he is.... I sure hope this turns out good...
This is a secret and I had to tell someone before I burst. Thanks for reading. Have a great day today
