I love Christmas.
The music at church.
The lazy days.
The non-stop food.
The lack of schedule.
The new toys.
The reflecting on just how much we are blessed.
But, Christmas is over. It is time to move on. But, my tree is still up.
Who am I kidding? All my decorations are still up.
I just don’t want the images of the Christmas play to leave my memory.
Or the fun with family to end.
I thought a trip to Hawaii would motivate me when I got back home. After all some fun in the sun should do that.
All the beautiful sunsets…
And climbs up craters.
In the moonlight.
In order to watch the sun rise.
With one of your dear friends.
Or even a little parade through the rain forest looking for water falls should get you out of the hangover.
And jumping into 60 degree water should wake up the soul.
And it did. But all good things must come to an end.
So, good bye Christmas tree. See you next Thanksgiving. I will miss you and the memories while you are gone.
