a Christmas wish -
joy to the world…
Do we have the time?
Or a tick-tock ho-hum
mentality of Stop – Watch.
Breathe. Listen. Care.
So tired, bone-weary.
I cry, but lack feeling.
Teary, over it, depressed,
torn like pretty paper.
Cards, words, messages.
Do you hear me?
Meaning may be lost
in the chaos and mayhem.
But without expensiveness,
spending too much, unwanted
excess – there are many
blessings worth heeding.
Sharing good food, enjoying the love
and laughter of friends and family.
No matter the reason, or the silliness
of the season, we are privileged.
We must take the time to breathe,
smile and hug one another,
for while the world is coming undone
at the seams, we are living the dream.
Beside a beautiful pool and garden,
or whether it’s singing karaoke,
drinking delicious concoctions,
or some other unnamed treat…
Keep it simple stupid –
the KISS principle.
Having a great new year is no harder
than deciding to take it easy!
I often think the meaning of Christmas is lost…
