In just a few weeks, the Christmas tree hunt will be on. Families will enter tents and patrol…
Only a few people have won a U.S. Open, completed an Ironman triathlon or qualified as Rhodes Scholars. Fewer still have positioned a Christmas tree so that it doesn’t lean.
One year, my wife Denalyn and I placed the tree in the stand, stood back and sighed at what we saw. The dreaded tilt. I crawled under the branches and began adjusting the screws until the tree stood as straight as a stalk of wheat. We stepped back and admired my engineering skills. Denalyn placed her arm in mine, and I choked back tears of joy. Angels began to sing. The blast of trumpets sounded in the front yard, where neighbors gathered. We strung lights and hung the decorations. It was a wonderful night.
