The day after...

I love the day after Christmas....while there's no doubt that the malls and parking lots are filled again with the "After-Christmas SALE" shoppers, around my house we're laying low. It's actually quiet right stress, no busyness, no rushing. Our family enjoyed a great day together yesterday eating, playing games, opening gifts and eating again.
We're greatly blessed to live so close to each other....we don't just gather together at Christmas, we try to make a point to get together every few weeks to catch up on every one's lives. The kids are growing so quickly, if we don't make it a habit now, they'll be gone all too soon and we will have missed our chance.
The day after Christmas means different things for different families...I have friends who are out shopping for next year's gifts already, and friends who are traveling to spend more time with family...I guess the point is just enjoying your own traditions and making new memories.
As long as you're doing it with the ones you love, then enjoy this day-after to the fullest!
May the coming year be filled with great peace, joy and laughter inside the walls of your homes...

Happy New Year!
