A Christmas Wish
My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun
I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer
May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought
May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold
I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too...
SUPER SATURDAY / SILENT NIGHT, HOLY NIGHT
On this day before Christmas, all is quiet here at my house. Not a creature is stirring...not even a mouse. For many years we spent Christmas eve with my Mom and Dad, and now that they are gone, it's quite different. Still the warm memories of those days gone by are close to my heart.
There were many years too, that we went to Christmas Eve services at church, but now I do that on Christmas Day. I don't do well at all with driving after dark and most evenings you'll find me at home.
Snug as a bug in a rug...
DS#5 and his family may stop by later in the evening and I may visit with my next door neighbor who happens to be one of my sisters, so I won't be sitting here alone. It'll be a nice Christmas Eve, just a little different than it used to be.
