Ah, yes... the after Christmas mess. It's inevitable, isn't it? The over flow of paper and boxes to put away. The serving dishes and glasses you use only once a year. New items received that don't yet have it's own place in your home. Clothes to put away. Books to put on the shelf. Games to be played and stored.
It can all wait.
The mess means family time is more important than cleaning time. It means lots of love was opened up on Christmas morning. It means we are blessed beyond the available space in our home
I am so very thankful for the mess.
