'Twas the Monday before Christmas when all through the house...Free vintage Images!

'Twas the Monday before Christmas
When all through the house
All the creatures were stirring,
Even the mouse.
The stockings weren't hung,
The list -incomplete...
Still haven't packed for my fine little fleet.
Doing the laundry, Red sweater- Oh SNAP!
Pink socks? AGAIN? ...I need a nap!
When up in the kitchen, arose the phone's call
Running upstairs to answer,
Pink socks and all.
"Her knee? Are you kidding?"
"Is there a gash?"
Away to the door I flew like a flash.
Phone still in hand, he in the drive
She with a limp for the ball she did dive.
"Now DOCTOR! Now NURSE! Now Ice -
The laundry, the packing, the list---No more LOAFIN'!
My head begins spinning with all of this treason,
I take a deep breath and remember the reason.
Close my eyes, say a prayer and thank my sweet Lord
For bringing light to this world through His Son so adored.
So when you get caught
In the stress of the season,
You too, take a breath and remember the reason.
The loved ones you have,
The ones you have lost,
Remember the LOVE,
For the THINGS,
They get tossed.
Speaking of things...
back to laundry out of sight-
But Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night :)

What a lovely image and I adore the poem. It really made me smile-necessary as my daughter has given me a present of her cold!
I hope that you and your family have a lovely Christmas too Kerry and I wish you all the best for the new year.
