End of a Season

Its already been here and gone. Its already the 'best after Xmas deals" season.

I'm not ready for that one. I want to sit in the afterglow of a long awaited visit from family, and rest on the laurels of what this christmas brought to me.

Its not the gifts I have stacked underneath my tree, its not the fact that my lil one now has a cell phone before her father does, its nothing physical. The feeling of having family around cannot be measured by mere items and free stuff. It is the stuff that makes us who we are. My dad took 2 weeks vacation to spend with me and my new found family. I think that is something special. Something I could have waited another 10 yrs to obtain, but one thing that will never be forgotten or dismissed.

Time spent with loved ones cannot be bought, nor marketed, nor promoted in any commercial, it is something that you have or you don't. My thoughts are about keeping those moments and forgetting the times I missed out due to my busy schedule.

Here's to time spent and laughter heard.
