This is how I felt at Christmas ;)
Christmas has passed and I enjoyed every second of its celebration, from preparing dinner to exchanging hugs. We sang a little out of tune, instead of one baby Jesus we had two, smiles showed up at early hours with rush, colors and all those details that ensured it would be a special celebration.
The party ended many hours later. –Many-. Why? Sharing just one night with loved ones is never enough. There are many reasons to be together not only blood ties, but also friendship, love ... this entire means "family”, a real family.
The floor is dirty, there are a couple of crystal glasses lying there after many toasts, and on the stairs a pair of shoes that I don’t know to whom they belong, furniture is upside down, and gift wrappings everywhere. A total Chaos!!!, a beautiful chaos that requires minimal effort when I think that the walls are impregnated with laughs and good vibes.
I feel a little bit exhausted but very happy, I enjoyed the picture captures that night and I feel privileged, I feel safe.
“I hope all you have happy holidays”
This feels good ... and I think that is just the beginning :)
