A Jamaican Christmas Miracle
(GA,United States )
When we moved to Jamaica I gave all my winter clothes away. After all we were going to the tropics. Land of sun and water and fun.
We had gotten an artificial Christmas tree and took all our ornaments with us. Each of us looked forward to Christmas with some hesitation as we had no idea what was in store for us at this time.
We arrived late that fall and were so excited about spending Christmas in a foreign land. At that time we had just moved in to a new house on Melwood Drive up in Cherry Gardens.
Our home had the living room on the second floor with a veranda and sliding glass doors that opened on to it.
Also there was a window near the corner where we decided to put our Christmas tree. It looked so beautiful standing there and reminded us of all our family back in the States :-)
Well it got a little warm later that afternoon and we opened that window.
Hmmm, I know you are guessing what happened next. And you would be right. Never judge a Christmas breeze until you have had the pleasure of experiencing one. HA.
Once that window was opened our beautiful tree breathed a great big sigh and fell forward from the breeze that came in that opened window!!!
I could have cried but with two children watching me to see my reaction I could not do that.
We decided the sliding doors was enough fresh air so we closed the window and stood our tree upright once again. And there was a Christmas miracle!
Not one single ornament was broken.! How is that for a wonderful Christmas?

Lol! Are your sure the children didn't quickly put it back up together for you so you don't feel bad? That's funny though, thanks for sharing Margaret.
