 Christmas Cheer



 I’m working myself up to that time off year

To wake myself up to all that Christmas cheer

Despite the global economy and credit crunch

We will still be having a Christmas lunch



Presents still surround a real pine tree

And we will be together, as a family

Aware so many will not have any of this luxury

And for this I feel truly and deeply sorry



I should not be a Christmas Grinch

For my family and me, this is a cinch

So I count my blessings and my good luck

To have all this and in a festive rut, be stuck



So I’m sending out a Christmas note

 And on this I hope you’ll quote

“Happy Christmas to one and all

Count your blessings both big and small

May New Year bring much peace and joy

To every man, woman, girl and boy”

Christmas should be all year long, every day and in every heart and soul. Christmas in March is believing in our Lord Jesus to be with us as we walk through our daly lives. I don't know how I missed this, Andrea, but I rate this a 10 out of 10, and thank you so much for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Merry Christmas!! Yes, we should have some if we can. I received a letter from a friend today that her husband died last month of cancer and this is her first xmas alone, and it really made me extra thankful for the xmas blessings we have. Thanks for reminding us, too. Blessings, Michelle
