The task of putting away the decorations from the holidays is always a daunting job! When we spend weeks decorating and then have to pack it all away it seems a little sad!
It seems a little strange that we only have our decor up for a few short weeks. My friends above don't seem to be the least bit worried! Don't they know they are going to go back into a box and be banished to the basement?
The dining room table was filled up with decor. The three of us ( well at least two of us ) worked for three days packing away the decorations for another year. How blessed we are to have new memories of another wonderful Christmas celebrated with our family!
All of the memories are stored, but not in boxes, but in my heart!
"Happiness of heart can never be measured out and bundled up, it's intangible. We keep running after it, grasping for it, and the heat of our running so seldom brings it closer. But now and then there may be a moment. We look at something and know it is good and beautiful. Those moments are happiness.”
