The Day after Christmas …

It’s the quiet chilly morning after Christmas. It was a wonderful day in our home yesterday, but I did not take one single picture, that is odd for someone who is always trying to capture each moment on film.

I was too busy to take pictures, busy enjoying the laughter of my family as they opened and watched us open each thoughtfully given gift.

Too busy listening to the sounds of my children, niece and nephew as they worked so hard to play and sing my favorite Christmas Song ( Night of Silence).

We shared a delicious dinner, in our warm home, we lit our Advent Candles and my children sang dutifully to make me happy as we lit each candle.

There was laughter, tears, past memories shared, future dreams discussed and new memories made.
This morning the stockings that were once hung by the chimney with care are scattered about with one single stocking remaining, the stocking for Jesus filled with our letters written over the years wishing Him a Happy Birthday.

There are no photos to remind me of the joy that filled my home this beautiful Christmas 2017, but my heart is filled with the memory and happiness of the greatest Christmas gift that any person can ever receive, the gift of family, friends, faith, hope and love.   My Christmas wish for us all is that the beauty of this season will continue in our hearts and minds long after the season is over.
