When I came down the stairs this morning, I felt it. The magic of Christmas is gone. All the trappings remain, at my house, but the magic of anticipation and the satisfaction of celebration have passed. It still looks pretty, but it’s not magical anymore.
Now it’s time to get the boxes out and carefully pack away the baubles and beauty, the sentimental and the sparkly. Their magic will return next year.
In the meantime…
I hope your Christmastime was full of love and happy family time!
