It was the day before Christmas
I’m not at my house
But hubby and loves ones are here
There’s no fires to douse!
No stockings are hung, but it doesn’t matter
This may be one Christmas
That doesn’t make us fatter!
Loved ones are healing
It’s a rough and ongoing ride
But maybe at the end of this year
We’ll look back what we’ve endured with some kind of pride.
Emotions have been high
As is our love
And when we all gather together on Christmas
We’ll think of miracles that happen everywhere and above.
So my wish for you
On the Eve of a very special day and tonight
Is to remember what it’s important
Merry Christmas to all and to all — a blessed and wondrous night.
Okay, so I’m not a poet.
I’m ready to say goodbye to 2012. There are many I’ve talked to who are ready as well! It’s been a trying year but from adversity comes new ways of thinking, new ways in which to cope and the knowing that one can get through just about anything by being loving, hopeful and kind.
Lucky 13, baby — 2013 — it’s going to be a good one, y’all — just wait.
I hope that wherever you are, whatever you may be going through — that you have love surrounding you and that you know miracles happen every day. Just look for them, be open and you find that everything always works out just they way it’s supposed to.
“It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do, and the holiday season — like all the other seasons — is a good time not only to tell stories of miracles, but to think about the miracles in your own life, and to be grateful for them.”
Lemony Snickett, The Lump of Coal.
Merry Christmas everyone, much love and here’s wishing you an abundance of miracles.
