Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!!! We are away holidaying at a ski resort for Christmas this year. Usually we go down south but we wanted to try a winter holiday this year. Though I am with the people I consider to be the essence of my existence, I do miss our family that we will not see over the next few days. I feel love, hope and enthusiasm for the coming new year and felt some inspiration for a poem. Hope you are having a wonderful time, celebrating life, love and all the important things at this special time of year!!
That Christmas Feeling
The snow begins to fall,
Gracefully feathering down to the ground,
The night is lit up with coloured lights,
Eyes are wide for every child in town.
The carols play over the radio,
Bringing back memories of this time,
A sweet nostalgic feeling to embrace,
The scent of evergreen is in its prime.
School is out for the holidays,
Children play and eat the snow,
No care in the world is what they have,
Carefree and happy feelings is what they know.
A time for friends and family,
Smiles and hugs will fill your days,
Chocolates and sweet cookies,
Love is shown in so many beautiful ways.
Thinking about what’s important,
Squeezing close with those held dear,
Don’t forget to look into their eyes,
And let them know that you are near.
Love is the reason for all this fuss,
Don’t let the purpose become skewed,
Let your loved ones know how you feel,
And your feelings show their magnitude.
I love you now, today and tomorrow,
I will love you forever more.
My heart is full when we’re together,
You make me feel like I could soar.
Merry Christmas to you my friend,
May your holiday be sweet,
Enjoy making new memories,
That forever you may keep.

It seems slightly comical to me that even though my daughter is only 4 years old and starting JK this week, I feel like it is such a big step in growing up. As the summer started, I thought, no big deal, she’s ready, she’s got this. As we made our way into August, my heart really changed tune! So in expressing my thoughts on the moment she leaves me for many years of school, I would like to share a poem. Maybe some moms out there can relate to my feeling too💖
Time For School, My Baby Girl
It seems like just yesterday,
I looked down at my little girl,
Just a baby sleeping peacefully,
Without a care in the world.
It’s only been four years,
But so much has changed,
I almost can’t remember,
How my life’s been rearranged.
So bright and animated,
With eyes blue like the sky,
A smile that captures my heart,
Her little giggle is a piece of art.
With a memory like an elephant,
She really keeps me on my toes,
An old soul is inside of her,
There is so much she already knows.
A gift of light to my heart,
She’s like a thunderbolt in the sky,
Our souls have always been together,
And I have never wondered why.
My baby girl is going to school,
The first big separation,
I’ve shed tears of sadness,
But for her it’s another equation.
She’s bright and ready to shine,
So inquisitive and smart,
I can’t wait to see her blossom,
And life without me is about to start!

Best of luck to all the little ones who start school this year. Hugs to all the mommies who will miss them when they go! xx xx
He held me tight in his big arms,
That morning I was born,
I’ve asked him how he felt that day,
He said Love made his heart so warm.
I’ll never forget the time,
He taught me how to tie my shoes,
Or when he brought my first bike home,
And when he painted my new room.
Outside he looks hard and stern,
But inside he’s thoughtful and kind,
Few may witness his deep softness,
The way his daughters are inclined.
When tears streamed down my face,
He’d wipe them away with his hands,
And softly say to make me know,
Don’t cry- Daddy understands.
He walked me down the isle,
On my beautiful wedding day,
And he sang to me when we danced,
What a beautiful song he chose to play.
He was always ready to cheer me on,
Patiently listen when I was sad,
His strength and Love were always there,
I’m so grateful that he’s my Dad.

When you were growing inside of her,
You listened contently to her heart,
Took great comfort in her voice,
You thought you’d never be apart.
Then you came out into the world,
Your blurry view caught her smiling eyes,
When they placed you on her chest,
The fear dissolved with no more cries.
As you grew you felt her love,
It helped you on your way,
Each new step you learned to take,
By your side you knew she’d stay.
When your were sad or feeling hurt,
She held you tight on her knee,
No one could take away from you,
The beauty she would always see.
The many nights she stayed up and worried,
Keeping much of what she felt inside,
Always hoping that she taught you well,
That what you knew to be right wasn’t denied.
Then you grew up and had your own,
Your heart has been overwhelmed by love,
All the times you overlooked her work,
Knowing now there could be nothing above.
Look into your mother’s eyes,
And hold her close and tight,
The bond you share is like no other,
You feel the glory of pure love in all its light.

Look into my eyes, look far and wide and deep.
You see a long horizon line with an ever growing reach.
Searching up you see a sky of love so radiant and bright,
Peering down, a warmth and grace so soft,
With beaming effulgent light.
Viewing across the line,
to the very farthest east,
a rising calm of fond compassion,
there’s no fear in you to say the least.
Upon the west your eyes will dwell,
your being feels enraptured,
With gorgeous faith and exquisite love,
Your senses are absolutely captured.
Like lightening strikes you see clearly now,
It’s your own eyes in the mirror,
With astonishment and disbelief,
You see that love flows so much nearer.
Searching up and down,
Side to side your gaze will leap,
You realize that without a doubt,
This gift in YOU is yours to keep.
