It is with mixed emotions that we remove the decorations and lights and pack things carefully so they can be used next year.
I have really enjoyed the tree this year.
Our holiday was better than last year. It was peaceful. We had some time off work and some time together. The only presents that were under the tree were a couple presents for sweet boyfriend's daughter and grandson and granddaughter who joined us for Christmas dinner.
Life is good. All our needs are met. So the simple joy of decorating the tree together and now dismantling the tree is another tradition forming more memories.
