Girl, she went shopping

Her birthday fast approaching

It all looked so good

Grabbed the purse, matching wallet

Perfume, new watch and blender

take a holiday

holidaze 035

There’s so much to do

Running here and shopping there

Wears thin all too soon

So take a moment

Stop and smell the hot cider

Have a cookie too

Imagine you’re done

Everything’s been wrapped or sent

And this one’s for you!

holiday presence


A moment’s wonder

Tissue and ribbons flying

Behold treasured gift

Eyes that dance, sing out

The heart’s joy is felt by all

Words can scare express

Years from now, a glance

Bringing back the memories

Of Christmas kindness

Open Up


Ah, dreams within you

Presents of creation’s love

To be re-gifted

Happy Birthday to My Brother, Mitch!

Aunt Jean Hoffman 2007 399

Life is precious at any age, be you a newly borne infant or a wizened sage.  The joy to be had is that you embrace your time here on earth by having thrice as much fun as you believe your time is worth!
