Oh my goodness what a wonderful feeling...Christmas is over. Sit down and relax for a while. Take it easy.

Are You Ready For Next Year?

Are You Ready

For Christmas,
Are you ready?
Are the lights up yet?
The tree too?
It comes like a light
You know,

And Just as Quickly its Over

In the middle of the night,
The golden holiday,
The great get ready for.

And then, just as quickly
And even more quietly
Its over.

And Be Thankful

Shut the door
And take a breath,
Get some rest
And be thankful
That it comes
Just once a year
And that tomorrow
Is just another day
In the never ending struggle

And Do it Again

To get ready
For Christmas.
Are the lights up yet?
Tree too?

Presents unwrapped?
Take ‘em down,
Put ‘em away,
Take it out,
And do it again, and again, and again
For Christmas.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

Good times remind us of how blessed we are but we have to earn them and to savor them all through the rest of the year. Thanks Utah Jay - siva

You are so right Siva, I really don't like Christmas all that much, but I do like to watch the children's eyes light up on Christmas morning...That is what I savor through the year.

in your pics I see the Mormons Temple, I love the Christmas show and very beautiful the songs and dances. I am a big admirer of the Mormon Church. Great post Utah!

Thanks for noticing Fern. I was born a member, but I never got involved, or active until I 57 years old. I was amazed, they took me in addictions and all. I couldn't do this without God in my life, be clean and sober I mean.
