All the gifts are unwrapped, the living room looks like a tornado touched down in it and if I eat another Christmas cookie I might just toss my cookies....lol. Spending Christmas with my family is truly a blessing but thank God it happens only once a year!
Today we are back to work. The weather here is a cold, windy, rainy type day. And wouldn't you know I left the house this morning without my coffee or my cell phone?!?!?! I guess I got so out of sync that I totally didn't know how to act this morning. Not to worry I am all straight (well as straight as I can get) now. But looking at the house I totally have the post Christmas Blues. You know what I mean. All the good cheer and joy of Christmas is gone. All the excitement and anticipation of the big day is now just a memory. And all my stomach can do is groan and mumble something about needing some TUMS. I do wish we could spread that good cheer out for more of the year...and maybe find a way to capture that excitement and focus it on something else. I did find one place that is perhaps trying to do just that. I Believe in Strangers. After the tragedy in CT I committed myself to doing 26 random acts of kindness. I have3 down and 23 more to go. I don't feel pressured to do them all at once or even in the next couple weeks...but in the next year. It's my hope that each one with cause a person to smile and maybe feel like it's Christmas that day for them.
I hope your day is not rainy and if it is I hope you are someplace warm. Glad tidings :)
