Ho Ho Holy Crap!

Christmas is coming and I have nothing wrapped.
Not everyone is shopped for and yet I am strapped.

I have knitted and knitted until I couldn't feel my hands.
Stockings and hats and scarves and head bands.

I'm not happy with what little I've produced.
Not happy. I need a Christmasy boost!

Can you buy it in a bottle? Like a 5 hour shot?
Only for 5 or 6 days? I'd like that a lot!

I need something! Something quick! I swear.
This "Bah Humbug" feeling is staring to wear.

I want to be happy, joyful and filled with GLEE!
Not inwardly screaming and wanting to flee.

I just want it to be over. How festive, I know.
I used to love Christmas and now I wish it'd just go.

My children count down the days with excitement and cheer.
How can I let them down? Ya, THAT is my fear.

What if they are sad when the see less under the tree?
What if they hate the gifts hand made by me?

What if what they asked Santafor, is not what they get?
Will it matter to them? Probably not that much I bet.

They are good kids. Happy with anything.
Thrilled for the holiday and not what the gifts bring.

They love the tradition! The lights and the songs,
The family and love will right all the wrongs!

I need not to worry. I need not to fear.
Things will be ok on Christmas this year.




Happy Holidays from all of us at KidLit'sKorner!
May it be stress free and love filled!

Thanks Laura. Ya, but it was taken after we already had created and received our cards. Which reminds me, I have cards to hand out to HMs. Should have brought them to Kim's. Oh well. After Christmas, Christmas cards are ok. Right? hehehehe
