'Tis the Night Before Christmas

Posted: Thursday, December 18, 2008

'Tis the night before Christmas,

And all through the house,

The only ones sleeping

Are my kids and my spouse.

The stockings are hung

The tree is all lit

The last cookie baked,

I think I'll just sit!

I reflect on this year

The days that have past,

The things we have done,

My, Time goes by fast!

Our children are sleeping

Warm in their beds,

While visions of Santa

And Toys dance in their heads.

I raise up from my chair,

And go to each room.

I kiss each cheek with care

And say, "Sleep. He'll be here soon."

The cookies and milk

Are set by the fire

I stifle a yawn,

Ready to retire.

I head to my bed

Ready to sleep

Tomorrow will be busy

With promises to keep

I take a moment to pray

And Thank God for my life

For the privilege of being

A mother and Wife.
