'Twas the Blog Before Christmas

'Twas the blog before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a thought was worth writing, not even an ounce;
The chores were all done, not that anyone else but I would care,
And, the baby? St. Nick? Who was he? Why would she care if he were there?
Little One, fast asleep and sprawled out on her bed,
Was probably dreaming of playtime instead.
Hubby in bed and I with last minute presents to wrap,
could barely keep eyes open and in need of a nap!

Okay, I was trying to be ambitious and would have loved to finish this poem. Honestly, I have nothing of interest to share. I wish I did. I wish I could have written some rather poignant post of the true meaning of Christmas. I wish I had some really outstanding story to share. I don't.

I do have to say that I wish all my friends and family a very Merry Christmas. I do feel blessed since this year, we are celebrating Christmas as a family. This time last year, Little One and I were at Moutn Sinai Hospital, where she spent her first two months of life in the NICU. This year, we are at home on the Island with our loved ones. This is something worth celebrating and being thankful for.

We are also blessed with Lola and Grampy being healthy and Baby Bro being on the Island for the Holidays.

It's sometimes hard to see all our blessings every day, but I have to learn to appreciate things more. We have our family. We have our health. We have our friends. We have our home. We have our livelihoods. We have food on the table. We have our precious Little One. We have our lives. Sometimes we lose sight of these things.

It sounds to me like you have a full grasp of what to be thankful for, and the best meaning of Christmas. It's OK to want more sometimes, to get frustrated. But keeping in mind what's REALLY important...that's great indeed.

Merry Christmas, friend. :)

That was a pretty good effort with the poem - really it was!

This is a tad late, but wishing you, hubby, and your precious little girl a wonderful holiday with your family.

Hi everyone!
Thanks for the Christmas wishes! Hope everyone had a great time celebrating the Holidays with family and friends.

Canine: HYMEN! I almost hurt myself laughing! As for the pooping reindeer we sent Bert...You're going to have to take pics! I didn't realize it was a "talking" reindeer. What does it say??? Did TC's second gift arrive??? I hope so!!

caninecologne said...
