Twas the week before Christmas when all through the house, office, car…Sheer panic approached with a twinkling from afar.
With packages in a mound still unwrapped, and cooking and cleaning yet still to come, So many activities, I almost feel numb.
Still have to work a part of next week,
And I dread that the house will fill on Friday with hungry people expecting to eat.
Oh my, what is that sound that I hear? The stress in my heartbeat echoing in my ear.
As much as I know all will get done,
I cannot help but feel a little bit numb. Exhaustion is here to stay for a while,
But through it all I will try to bare a smile. For this is a magical time of the year,
And I will try to approach it in good cheer. It will be over too soon, as we all know.
The hours of preparing for moments, and oh! No matter how early we start to prepare,
There’s not enough time. It just is not fair.
Family times, giving and love, With blessings and peace to all from above.
