As the last day of Christmas comes to an end I always feel sad. I'm sad that Christmas is just about over; that the tree and decorations come down. That my beautiful Christmas dishes go away for 11 more months, the stockings are packed away with our New Year's resolutions in them and my christmas cd's go back on the shelf.
Although this Christmas has been a little out of the ordinary I feel truly blessed with the love of family and friends. My dear sweet hubby finally made it back home; my darling father in-law's health has greatly improved, my new heater is on it's way ;)
the boy made it home!
Well he's not our boy but it feels like it. My daughter's cute and adorable boyfriend returned home from basic training.
So yes-sir-ee, life is good! So although the tree in the living room goes back to the attic I still admire the one that stays up year round in the dining room. And even if the christmas dishes are on the top shelf I can always get a climpse of them daily when I reach for the every day dishes. Just because the calendar says Christmas won't be back until December I can always manage to keep it in my heart and in my home year round!
