Not Yet

"Yesterday has gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin."
~Mother Theresa

I'm currently considering taking down the tree. But something keeps pulling at me, telling me not to do it quite yet.

I want to listen. I want to follow my heart and do exactly what it's quietly whispering, yet I fight the urge to listen to logic and to check "put Christmas decorations away" off of my long list.
Those little decorations, the tiny ornaments and twinkle lights, the giddy elves and the glittery cupcakes-- they make me feel cozy and magical and content. And, you see, when they are gone, so is the charm and slight quirkiness of it all, and back are the plain, boring walls, sterile table tops, and perfect dullness.

Perhaps those are the very reasons I decorated so early this year. Maybe I wanted to enjoy the eclectic wonder a bit longer than usual?

Please, Christmas and holiday season, don't go away quite yet. I'll miss you too much.

I know how you feel about taking down the tree. We hated it so much as kids that my mom did it while we were at school.

I love the lights the most. We will wait until the feat of the 3 kings, that is when the Christmas season officially ends.

I love your Christmas photos. They are all beautiful. Talk to you soon!

Cathy, I hear you. I had that same talk to myself yesterday. Sad to say, logic won...
