Merry Christmas to All

It's the day before Christmas
As I sit at my desk typing
Ignoring the hoopla
and last minute shopping hyping

I've read my friends' blogs
Caught up on their news
Read their Christmas stories
And picked up on the cues

Now I'm feeling somewhat dodgy
Both Happy and Sad
Without being too stodgy
I want to be Glad

That Christmas is here
New Years just next week
This last year was a challenge
Not one for the meek

Let's wish it looks up
That Santa brings hope
Along with the regular gifts
So that we can all cope

With what life brings us
in this New Year
Along with the difficulties
And problems we fear

That the coming year may bring
something new and happy
We need some good news
So Santa make it snappy

When you visit tonight
When your sleigh comes to rest
When you come down my Chimney
Please bring your best

Bring some good news
Some faith, hope and love
To all those in need
From our Father above

May you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Many thanks to all who've read and commented at the Bloggerhood this year. It has been my great pleasure to read your stories, comments and blogs.
