Pine Trees

It was that time of the year. Go into any store, drive down any street and you can’t help seeing “it”.

One day Asma so innocently and casually asked me, “Mommy why do they put lights on the pine trees?” It took me a moment to figure out what she was saying and when I finally did, I was secretly amused.

Isn’t it wonderful that to her it’s just a pine tree? I wish it had been that way for me too as a child…

Masha-Allah, may Allah preserve her innocence! Ameen.
