life as it is seen from my heart and soul

the day after Christmass

oh the day after.  when I think about all the things I didn’t do or get done.  or the words I should have said that I didn’t.  this year was simple and good.  the 11pm service provided the calm of the cold night.  when I wonder what will the next year bring that I don’t want to think about or deal with.
the sun is shining defying the cold air.  the food over the last two days has been very good, but it is the family… the laughs, the hugs, the smiles, the big people that used to be little feet running around in footie pajamas that I would rather have here.  it isn’t the gifts, but the One Gift and what that means for all of us.  I keep praying they all come to understand that is the One Gift they need more than anything
