GO! See My Favorite Christmas Gift!!

Hi, flower smellers! I’m loving the holiday weather from sunny Southern California.  Christmas came a little early this year because last week I received my first Christmas gift.  Better yet, I was told to open it and it was…

“This Tree Needs You” which is a replica of the sad looking tree in “A Charlie Brown Christmas”  shown in the clip at the beginning of this post.  I am sure this will be my favorite gift.  The special always makes me cry and I love the symbolism of the tree.  Linus’s states, “I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.”

My therapist tells me, I need a lot of love because I didn’t get that growing up and was told that I was bad.  People who are “difficult” or “prickly,”  just need a lot of love and acceptance too.  Underneath the “prickliness” is usually a lot of hurt. 

I always think that each and every person no matter how defended they are as that tree that just needs a little love.  Granted some need a lot more to become full and beautiful and some won’t accept it.  But, a little love goes a long way no matter what the response.  This Christmas I wish for everyone to receive a little more love and acceptance to grow in beauty

I also challenge you to show love to someone new in a different way.

What are some of your ideas in how to show a little love?

What have you done in the past to show a little love?

Or are you one that needs a little love and why…try to dig deep?

    Mrs AEP arrived home the other night and i took part of your advice – ‘in a different way’ – she wasn’t very pleased!

      AEP My hubby did a double take when he read that as well… until he read what it was about :)

      • AEP and AC,

        Everything in context. Just trying to get people to think about alternative ways of expressing love or all types to coworkers, friends, significant others etc.. It adds deeper meaning and is more spontaneous and fun. It is good for any relationship.

        I sure hope I didn’t dig myself more into the ground. :-)

    Oh dear AEP, oh dear…at least its making love n not war, or at least I hope so…

    CC that tree does look like it’s in need of some TLC – maybe a new position for it here in the garden as we can often grow more when we see things from different perspectives, right?

    Perhaps not only green thumbs but green hands required.
    I do think the first place to start would be some soil, then water, show your love by planting the poor thing before its late… lol.. ;)

    hmmmm I show love all the time.. by merely speeking to some towns people is an act of kindness…. lol..
    To show anymore than this in this town could have serious consequences… :)

    dont need more loven, I am not huggy, kissy type of girl …. except from the kids where cuddles are a must.

    I do love your tree, it really cute.. but you really should put it in a pot…. poor thing…
    Sending love to it…. ;)

    I love the Charlie Brown tree. I have an old scraggly tree that is decorated – it’s artificial, and was my mother’s. She lost many of the branches or something, packing and unpacking. One year, when I came home for Christmas, rather that pitch the tree, she decorated it and put it in the guest room where I stayed, all lopsided and sparse. I made her leave it up year round. Even in July I plugged in those lights.

    I love my kitty cat, Oliver, as you can see.
