Christmas Panic!!…A Poem ;)


T’was the night before….

the night before Christmas

and lo and behold

We hadn’t shopped for one gift

and so we were told

To get out of the house

and into the shops

or your kids will be so sad

surely they’ll flop!

So out I ran

my husband in tow

we ran around in circles

and didn’t know where to go!

The big box stores just made us mad

Since no Christmas spirit could be had.

So on we went

in search of some cheer

when we found ourselves thinking

it might be nice to have a beer??!!

so into the bar

we rambled and roamed

until we found

we couldn’t find our way home!

Another day passed

with great anxiety

we had to be ready

with more gifts aplenty!

Dashing into one store,

and out of the next,

our baskets were full,

but we weren’t finished yet.

Then back to the house,

in a flurry of stuff,

we wrapped and we bowed,

and we blinged and we fluffed.

Then what should appear

to our wondering eyes

but our seven lovely children

and a great big surprise!

They had come empty handed,

but with hearts full of love,

to remind us of Christmas

and the better lessons of love.

To recall what we had taught

to them for so long,

love one another,

and say sorry when you’re wrong.

 Be good to yourselves,

and don’t give up on love,

When you have big questions,

don’t forget to look up.

Remember that this family,

is always your tribe,

and when you have troubles,

this is where you can abide.

Now we see seven beautiful children,

As magical as can be

saying good night and merry Christmas

To everyone we wish you peace!

**Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends and followers. thank you for your love and encouragement throughout this past year, Wishing you and those you love ENOUGH of everything that will make you truly happy 😉 Peace!

    Thank you very much, Josie. Sometimes kids can be so simple that they teach us a lesson of life. And that is priceless, and to be greatful for.
    Wish you a heart full of love for the last days of the year and hope next year comes full of positive surprises, full of ”beautiful accidents”.
