A Christmas Poem

Some go for chocolate, savory and divine,

Some go for whisky, tequila, and lime.

Some prefer turkey and some prefer ham,

Some prefer stuffing with strawberry jam.

 

Some want the morning to come rather quick,

Enthused for their bounty from good ole’ St. Nick.

Some want their stockings to brim with delight,

While some just want warmth on a cold Winter’s night.

 

Some want their presents up under the tree,

While some just want time spent with their family.

Some dream of sunshine while some dream of snow,

Some want the rays of a cool winter’s glow.

 

Some long for families with whom they can dine,

While some wish to relax alone with their wine.

Some prefer strudels and some prefer cake,

Some prefer pies that entrance when they’re baked.

 

Some want the cookies while some want the joy,

Some want the eggnog and some want the toys.

Some want an excuse to go have a ball…

Some want the memories, but I want it ALL ;)

 

Merry Christmas, Everyone!!!  May you all have a beautiful holiday with your loved ones and may your smiles be filled with the sun, moon, and stars.

A Christmas Thought…

Here we are…at the time of the year when most people look back and reflect on their lives, experiences, successes, failures, relationships, and beliefs. Most are also looking ahead, planning for the coming year…preparing and constructing their goals, purposes, and aspirations as the old year draws towards an end. Many people enjoy the comforts and pleasures of reflecting on past accomplishments and experiences with loved ones…sharing meals together, exchanging gifts with one another, and generally being thankful for having such people in their lives. This is a time where most individuals really embrace the idea of “family” and truly slow down just enough to realize what that entails. It is my purpose to fully embrace this recognition of family and love during this beautiful Christmas season, the end of the old year, and perpetually and indefinitely throughout the coming year and on. Past successes don’t always guarantee future successes. Failures don’t always condemn impending doom. Family, however, on whatever level one chooses to acknowledge or experience it, is the heartbeat of everything. It is one thing that will always just “BE.” Love makes the world turn. It is the creative power in the Universe. Embrace it and accept it on any and every level during this wonderful time of year and try to carry those thoughts, intentions, and feelings with you throughout the duration of the coming year and watch the world open up and shower you with blessings. Every day is Christmas if you let it be.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
