Great Christmas Tree Tour: Melinda Elmore
"This is my Christmas tree. It is decorated in all glass ornaments. Some of the ornaments have photos of my kids and several for my father in law who passed away in 2001.
"The tree is special to me becasue my daughter, son , husband, and myself place the ornaments together every year. Christmas is my favorite holiday not because of gifts but becasue my family is everything to me. I have been blessed to have such a wonderful family that I cherish everyday.
"I also have an ornament on the tree for Native Americans for my heart is for them also. One ornament is for St. Jude's Hospital for all the cancer patients."
Thank you for sharing your tree with us, Linda! It's definitely a special one filled with memories and hope.
