Store bought fudge -
A day or two ago
I thought I'd make a treat
For all my special friends
a Christmas treat to eat.
My intentions were top notch
But my schedule wouldn't budge
Hence, here's this edition
Of my homemade Christmas Fudge!
The Greatest Gift of All
Once upon a time
In a very far away place
There was a kind dear woman
With a tender, loving face.
She was full of charity
The greatest gift of all
And she'd give of anything she had
Even if the gift was small.
She always took great care
Of every puppy or lost kitten
And to anyone in need
She'd give a stocking or a mitten.
She would always say the spirit
Of Christmas was to believe
And if you ever asked her why
She'd say, "To give is to receive."
And so my friend I'd like to pass
Her tradition on to you.
And hope the giving spirit lasts
The whole year through.
When you light the Christmas candle,
When you see the golden glow
When you watch the flame grow brighter,
When the wax begins to flow;
Will you light another candle
Way down deep within your soul
That will help to guide your footsteps
Ever nearer to your goal
As you seek to find the Christ child
When he comes to earth again
To be born, not in a manger,
But within the hearts of men.
