Your Relationship With Your Christmas Spirit


Howís Your Relationship With Your Christmas Spirit?

LOOKING FOR MY CHRISTMAS SPIRIT
By Kate Woods

Iíve looked for my Christmas Sprit everywhere,
But I simply can not seem to find it.

Iím not sure why it seems to be lost,
Perhaps itís because of all of the cost.

Perhaps itís because of all of the work,
Perhaps itís because of the relatives quirks.

Perhaps itís because of the plans gone amiss,
Perhaps itís because of a long gone, missed, mistletoe kiss.

Iíve looked in catalogues that I get in the mail,
All I see there is, hey CHRISTMAS IS NOW ON SALE.

Iíve tried to remember how Iím supposed to feel,
But maybe Iím just too busy for this whole Christmas deal.

Let me see now, perhaps I should analyze this Christmas thing,
And figure out why, for me, it has lost its zing.

OK, now Iíll start with my Christmas MUST DO LIST,
Could this be the problem?, Maybe itís something Iíve missed.

Shop for Christmas gifts for just about everyone that I know,
Check weather reports, plan family ski trip for day with predicted snow.

Get wrapping paper and ribbon several colors and kinds,
Bake and order Christmas cookies galore many flavors and designs.

Get the tree and decorations out of the attic cubbyhole,
Find Grandmaís crystal Eggnog cups and bowl,

Schedule Kitty and Doggie and all family members
For their holiday hair cuts and grooming,
Call all family members to see if scheduling problems are looming.

Wrap gifts as I buy them and stick on the bows,
Begin building the tree here and there,
Putting the branches into their color coded rows.

Well, Iím progressing through my list,
So far I canít think of anything Iíve missed.

Shop for the fixings for the Holiday dinners,
Take the kids to the Ornament contest at school, to see if theyíre winners.

Trim the tree, wrap some more, cook and clean,
Replace the bad string of lights, perhaps we should do this as a team.

I canít really think of anything that I might have missed,
Maybe it really is that long lost, missed, mistletoe kiss.

Or maybe itís the fact that we donít take the time
To hum Christmas Carols and take walks through a stand of pines.

And now that Iím thinking it might also be,
That we make a chore out of decorating the tree.

And do we absolutely really need,
Twelve kinds of cookies to be able to BELIEVE?

To BELIEVE that thereís magic in this Season of Joy,
We just need to look into the eyes of a little girl or boy.

So Iím changing my list to something that makes more sense,
And making THIS holiday season less intense.

Bit by bit, one day at a time,
Iíll reclaim the Christmas Spirit that was once mine!

You can do it, create a better more joyful relationship with your Christmas Spirit this year :)
