The stockings are filled and the tree twinkles with lights and ornaments with memories of holidays past; a sense of calm descends upon the farm for another year.
The turkey waits patiently on the counter for attention. My hot chocolate smoothie is almost ready and any moment now the dog will appear by my side waiting for her morning stroll. Does she care it is Christmas morning? Nope, she just wants me to remove this festive bow I have affixed to her collar.
Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanza or keeping this time in some other way, I wish you the warmth and joy of family and friends and may this be a wonder-filled time. All the best to all of you for the holiday season and a New Year that sees all your dreams come true.
Dancing little Christmas star
that fills my world with light.
Shine down upon the ones I love
and bless their worlds tonight.
Bring them peace and hope and joy
to fill their hearts and then,
Watch over them and keep them safe
‘til Christmas comes again.
