I like how you described the attic. I also liked how you transitioned your character's emotion from dread to thankfulness.
Your words caught the mood well of the heart-wrenching task of emptying and packing a childhood home. Couldn't help but wonder why she was alone especially since a brother, Jeremy, was mentioned. Touching piece. :)
Great descriptions and carrying the reader in the story. Very touching. The only thing that confused me was the name change from Amber to Amanda, but otherwise wonderful Christmas tree story.

You described nicely how the tree was the key that unlocked her memories and brought healing. Nicely done. I was a little confused by the name change (Amber to Amanda).
