What is that special feeling….
The sort of happy glow…
The Christmas spirit many search for?
Is it the excitement of what you may receive….
or have you discovered that giving is truly where the excitement lies?
The wondrous look as you gaze at the lights..
decorations and think back… or ahead…….
Is that look only visible on a child’s face?
Or does one sneak out on yours as you gaze at a child
that is filled with Christmas Spirit?
That excitement is so powerful.
for one night a year
you can get a child filled with energy to behave….
lol.. well a tiny bit. I am told it didn’t work for me.
shhhhhh… it still doesn’t 🙂
But that look… it is so special
It is the heart of Christmas Spirit
is it amazement… awe?
Like those visits to Santa..
when you whispered in his ear
with hope he would remember
and liked your cookies from last year
seeing all the lights
blinking, twinkling and looking so magical.
awwww, the magic,
Christmas seems full of magic
You see it everywhere as the excitement builds
from a flickering flame
to an empty stocking
hung with such care
That excitement is everywhere…. building
It is so hard to contain
It is fighting to come out
but you have to behave..
he is watching….
he knows if you are good
awwww, but they are all good
so you have to try
to contain all the excitement…
and wait.. such a long wait
how to stay out of trouble
while that day gets closer
when everything is so sparkly
It is sooooo hard
everything needs to be touched
but you can’t reach everything
perhaps that is a good thing?
it is getting closer though….
Is the excitement building in you yet?
