I have college graduation ceremonies to attend, roads to travel, Simulated Christmas Events to choreograph, Christmas cards to write and presents to wrap. I have instructions to read, batteries to charge, ribbons to cut, décor to straighten, hair to color and nails to paint. I have holiday outfits to buy, clothes to pack, gifts to ship, pets to kennel, trees to water and icing to scrape off the kitchen floor. There are birthday candles to blow out, pictures to be taken, videos to be made, states to cross and flowers to order. There are cocktail parties to mingle, office lunches to charm, play dates to shuffle and Dirty Santa gifts to exchange. There are toasts to be made, dinner rolls to burn, bonuses to acquire and tinsel to muck up the vacuum cleaner. I have stockings to stuff, fire logs to ignite, children to spoil and charities to donate to. I have lights to admire, wonderlands to view, cookies to bake and buckeyes to eat. But most of all I have friends to hug, family to see, proud moments to behold, child-like wonder to enjoy and maybe even a little snowman building to make it all absolutely perfect. Life is good.
and the Happiest
Happy New Year!
