It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax!
This has been a hard and strange year and Christmas was strange this year too. Our family didn’t get together because we are trying to remain safe during the pandemic. We celebrated by opening gifts from one another on Skype. It was nice but doesn’t begin to compare to being together.
Christmas always comes & goes so quickly. The poem below I wrote a few years back. I wanted to share it again.
CHRISTMAS IS NEAR…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
People all around are so full of cheer
Bells that are jingling all the way
Songs a plenty about that special day
Children thinking about all of the gifts
Telling Santa what’s on their wish list
Trees decorated so beautiful & bright
That glow beautiful in the silent night
Going here & there travelers abound
Friends and family gathering all around
Candy canes and cookies galore
Mashed potatoes, gravy and so much more
Stockings stuffed with treats for Fido
So full they fall and land on the bible
Everyone stops and remembers the reason
That we celebrate this festive season
It’s not about Santa and his sleigh full of toys
But Jesus’s birth and to the world what joy!
So from me and even my little scrooge too
We wish a very Merry Christmas to you

I know at this point Christmas has already been & gone this year but because we didn’t get together it almost feels like we didn’t have it. Then I am reminded, as I mention in my poem, what Christmas is really about and I remember it is something that is celebrated no matter the circumstances. It isn’t about me.
Well, as I mentioned, we did open gifts via Skype. One of my favorite gifts that I received is this beaded giraffe. Not only is it adorable but the proceeds go to feeding starving children.
Cino loves the floppy fish she received from grandma!
I know at least two other people who also received this or got this for their cats this year too. Guess it’s a popular toy. 🙂 Did any of you with cats out there get this toy?
I hope you have still been able to enjoy Christmas this strange year.
