Happy New Year!

What? That's it? No more presents for me?
(Well, except that huge one behind you kiddo).

Maybe most kids have this expression, or this feeling, one Christmas or another
in their childhood.
I remember, quite well, my little brother having a similar reaction one Christmas.
Two minutes later his beautiful new bike was wheeled in from outside.

It's not quite the same, but I do tend to feel a let-down after Christmas.
I feel somewhat sad, not for what wasn't received or for what didn't happen,
but because it's over.

But, like that big present looming behind Kingsley, or
my brother's soon-to-be-revealed bike, I need to remember that
there is always more good to come.

Happy New Year!
