There’s a jolly elf

Somewhere sitting on a shelf

Waiting to surprise

Hidden so well, you can’t tell

Twas Fido who found him first

Gifts from Moments



And seasons

Are quick to leave

Do we take the time

To enjoy their purpose

Allowing ourselves to feel

How they are here to bless our lives

Giving our eyes a clearer vision

Because we are seeing with our hearts

Ho No No

Holiday frenzy

Never making spirits bright

Until it’s over

How can one enjoy the time

When it goes by so dang fast

free love

Trading ghosts and bats

For horns of plenty with fruit

Help us transition

From the time of tricks and treats

To the time of giving thanks

Thank you, for your Attitude of Gratitude
