    My co-workers gave me a wonderful surprise for my retirement reception last month. Knowing my love for Christmas, they bought a 4 1/2 ft. Christmas tree (in September) and had colorful flat wooden ornaments for the guests to write a message to me instead of a guest book. I worked for a very large hospital for 35 years and have many friends, I love the idea of putting up my new tree each year with all those sweet memories and notes from friends.

    That is a very sweet gift! If I have known you personally, I might gave you the same thing as I also love Christmas. It's the best day in the year!
