Twas the Night Before Christmas (when I wrote this blog post)

by Sarah Sullivan 


Holiday To Do List: 

Find Christmas tree that all five family members agree is the very best tree in the lot. 

Decorate tree and house in festive accoutrement

Attend holiday concerts at three different schools

Bake and deliver spicy pecans for neighbors and friends

Shop for Families in Need program

Send out thoughtful yet inexpensive gifts to husband’s huge family

Research ways to entertain children over 16 day holiday break

Pack for ski trip

Rifle through all pictures from 2013 to find perfect family photo

Design New Year’s Card

Send said card to 100 closest friends

Clean house for entertaining

Shop for gifts

Come up with creative holiday gifts for teachers

Prepare 3 festive meals

Celebrate 13th anniversary 

Write a blog post for NCW -Whoops! I knew I forgot something!

…or perhaps I was simply overwhelmed by the task of writing a meaningful piece to capture the spirit of the holiday season. So instead I offer you, dear reader, this poem to highlight the simple beauty that is often overlooked in the rush and chaos of December. 

Winter Haiku

A baby boy born
Eight lights on a winters night
Solstice moon shines high

However you celebrate this Holiday, may you be blessed with the light and love of the season surrounded by family and friends and grateful for all life’s blessings. 

Happy Holidays to all!
