Christmas is Over Again
Yes, it's over for another year. A weary Santa has hung up his cap, fed his reindeer, and collapsed in front of the fireplace with a cup of cheer in his hand. Mrs. Santa had a busy time too, keeping all the elves fed, pressing Santa's travel suit, and all the other important details wives are so talented at handling -- and that Santa hadn't given a thought to. She even used her computer skills to plan Santa's route and schedule. Now they can rest for a couple of weeks before firing up the factory again for next year's presents.
Here at home, we'll keep the Christmas lights burning for a few more nights, let the spirit wind down slowly.
What a shame to let that Christmas spirit wind down at all. Let's remember that love and caring and sharing is what Christmas should mean (as well as being the birthday of the One Who came so long ago), and then hang onto that spirit every day of the rest of our lives.
We'll try to do just that for the rest of ... Our Life on Wheels.
