The wrapping paper has found it's way to the floor.  The sparkle the glitter, the wonder and hope has all been swooped up into one giant ball --- tossed in the air and scattered about.  

There was laughter
Tears, the good kind of tears
Deep hugs, and warm embraces.  

There were talks of dreams, and the beginning of building a future together
Seeing dear family we haven't seen in year's
And getting back someone we felt we lost

New memories have been made
Pajamas have been worn
And photos have been taken to show their kids one day

It was good, so very good
Gathering with family fills my heart with love
And reminds me of how deeply blessed I am
