      This year I found putting up the Christmas tree very stressful. We finally took it off its stand so it was not very tall, and I sat in a chair to decorate it. So here’s a tip – have a small tree! I have to admit that I cried my eyes out but now the tree looks lovely and I’ve already recruited a friend and her small child to help next year. Knowing when to ask for help is my second tip!

      Great tips Wendy – thanks for sharing!

      Accepting a small tree so that I could decorate it with my physical limitations now would be tough, I empathize with the tears you had. Glad it looks beautiful now, and you can enjoy it. Important to ask for help, I agree. Glad you’ll have that help next year. Enjoy the holidays as best you can!
