Twas the Saturday before Christmas

December 22, 2018

Twas the Saturday before Christmas and family was arriving
They came by plane and train and some were driving

 

Who would sleep where and in what bed
As visions of laundry danced in my head

 

Menus need planning and groceries bought
And it was all taking much consideration and thought

 

How to entertain children and parents alike
I wanted to send them all on a very long hike

 

Aromas arose from food that was cooking

And ooohs and aahs from kids who were looking

 

Under the tree where presents were lurking
While I seasoned and brined a ginormous turkey 

 

We gathered together after the children were asleep

Snug in beds, they dreamt with not even a peep

 

Grownups relaxed and sipped their libations

And talked about jobs and recent vacations

 

With days still to Christmas  I prayed they’d find reason
to really enjoy and celebrate the season
