Past Christmas

I've always believed that the best gift

Is given to each of us past Christmas

After the tinsel and toys had their day

Beyond religious services and elation

Pleased that family and close friends

Are back into preferred life choices

Giving us the gift to think singularly

F William Broome 2006 - 2010

I too, like Myrna, dread the days past Christmas...I seem to get the blues. Enjoyed your thoughtful write Bill

I was dreading this day past Christmas... It could stayed Christmas forever for me. Today my granddaughter moved six hours away.. I wish I could turn back time. But on most occasions I would agree totally with you..))

Well this certainly gives us a gift and that is to ponder our sense of what Christmas means to us as both individuals and families. Very well done William.

Much to ponder within the lines of this write my friend. I must say that I do enjoy the festivities of the, dinners, church, plays, shopping...but I also must agree that I am always glad to get back to the routine of daily living. A profound write indeed!
Blessings from Ky.

Your pen is filled with lots of little things in this short write that does make it timely.

Reviewed by Karen Vanderlaan 12/26/2007
enjoyed the write, there is so much tangled up in all the holiday "stuff"
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 12/26/2007
Been given that choice all along, Bill, I respectfully disagree with you on that. Life is all about choices. We are not pushed into attending religious services; we are not forced to go into debt to make someone's Christmas special. You know? Just my thoughts...still, a thought provoker you've penned in short lines of impact.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
