It’s a week before Christmas…


It’s a week before Christmas and all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, well that’s not really true

The exterminator’s coming tomorrow at dawn

To check out the noise we heard near the flue

The gifts have been wrapped

And the stockings are hung

Just waiting for the daughter and grand-cat to come

While our son and his girlfriend head out to her parents

To visit and play and drink buttered rum

Before Christmas ends I need to review

All the things we have done and all we’ve been through

Graduations, and weddings and trips all this year

Plus I started this blog with quite a few cheers

As we wait for Sir Claus and his crazy reindeer

We reflect the true meaning and I’m very sincere

The birth of the Son, the One of a kind

The One who emanates such peace of mind

So to you and your family

So far from my sight

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night

Grateful for you,


Special Note:  My sister-in-law, Joy Cannis, just published a beautiful story – When This Isn’t “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” – on her blog about people who can’t see the wonder in this season and why.  It’s a beautiful reminder to check in on those who have had a loss this year.
