Happy Holidays To All My Friends And Readers At AD. May The New Year hold only blessings for you. I've not been able to be here as often as I wish I could. Forgive me and thank you for reading me when I couldn't be here to read you. I love and appreciate All Of You.


Last Christmas
By La Belle Rouge

I知 glad now that there were too many
gaudy decorations on the front yard
for grandkids to help with and enjoy
I知 glad the house was spotless and
scented with cinnamon apple candles
It's good we dragged the ten foot tree in
and wrapped too many lights around it
I知 grateful for a few presents under it
It痴 good those strands of lighted bells
made us all feel joy when they played
the old familiar Christmas carols again
Taking time to set up the Nativity Scene
kept us focused on the real celebration
I feel warm satisfaction remembering
I cooked all day, had turkey and ham
with all the trimmings on the big table
where we all sat down to eat and laugh
The fire on the hearth blazed with joy
I知 glad there was no strife or sorrow
for it痴 a Christmas I値l forever cherish
Our whole family together and happy
A special Christmas that I知 thankful for
and I知 glad it was celebrated as it was
because I didn稚 know last Christmas
would be the last time we壇 all gather
the last one we would celebrate together
So make each Christmas memorable,
Decorate the tree, cook the turkey and
gather the ones you love close to you
for you never know if it will be..the last

Bittersweet memory, Belle.

There's a bittersweet tone here, Belle, and a gentle well-delivered lesson, not preachy but very much to the point, and of course the writing is, as ever, a delight for the reader.
