I smile when there is conflict in my family
I realize it’s their dance they enjoy naturally.
I smile when I hear of complaints during the season
As some don’t have a home for a good reason.
As I’m warmed by the beauty of fresh fallen snow.
I smile when I get stressed out
Remembering that all I have to do is to breathe out.
I smile at the pushing, the rushing, and the noise
It’s all about getting those special Christmas toys.
I smile when I think of gaining extra pounds
It means enjoying good food with love all around.
For it is about love, not the stuff.
I smile when I don’t have more money to spend
It’s not money, but loving thoughts that never end.
I smile when I can’t decide what to do
It reminds me of all the abundance from which to choose.
Just take a moment to absorb what you’re grateful for
And treasure the memories you adore.
Listen to the seasonal bells ringing
And be blessed with all the Angelic voices singing.
Wishing you and your family a joyous season,
