Christmas Poem

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder
 That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise

Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food
Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!

Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December
