Boxing Day

Although we do not celebrate Boxing day in the United States I am a great fan of the concept. Wikipedia says “It originated as a day for giving gifts to employees and poor people” but for me it has always presented the opportunity for a Christmas do-over. The huge stress of getting everything done in time for Christmas is over. The presents opened, the celebration mess cleaned up, the kids occupied with their new toys and the fights over holiday slights and sibling struggles over.

It is a day of peace. For me I sat with my darling little mother and had a most lovely chat. Honest emotion, no mean spiritedness, all hard feelings gone. Peace.

I am so grateful for this time with her.
