I came up with this tonight, while I was cleaning up from Christmas decorating. It was a lot of work, after a long day. Good thing the end results are worth it. It’s officially Christmas now at our house!
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, every ornament was hung, from here to there.
When Mom thought she was done, the children begged her to hang more lights just for fun.
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads, Mom secretly hoped it would soon be time for the children to go to bed, so the decorating could end.
When the children were nestled all snug in their beds, “Finally, the decorating is done,“ Mom said.
She collapsed on the couch, and thought with all work at the holidays she need the help of an elf. She looked around at all the lights in the dark, and smiled in spite of herself.
The house was quite cheery, and it was a beautiful site.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
