As I stated in a prior post,
I've spent a lot of Christmases away from home.
During the lean years, we managed to somehow
always afford a tree...
and, when I was too busy to decorate,
somehow my now-hubby still managed to make
Like searching through the boxes while I was at work
this one Christmas Eve, so I'd have a little surprise
when I got home and could share a few
precious hours with him until the next overnight shift.
"Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now"
