Wrapping Up Christmas

It is over

Twinkle lights switched off

Boxes dragged to the lounge

Preparing to wrap up Christmas

I reflect on all that has passed

This Christmas

Now to remove

The tree

The decorations

The wreath at the door to welcome

Wrapping them carefully in tissue

Packing all away til next year

I wonder

What else will be packed away until next year?

Christmas cheer

Face worn Well-being and Optimism

Hope

Real post

Real food

Goodwill to all

Merriment

Togetherness

Making way

For others

Family

Friends

Strangers

The chance to wish shopkeepers Happy Christmas

Seeing for a moment the stress of busyness

Give way to a grateful smile

Thinking of others

Giving

Without recognition or thanks

How to keep it going

Hmmm time to get creative…
