Christmas Dogs

Standard

xmas dogs

Please accept my apologies
for not posting on Christmas Eve
I was up late
wrapping presents
after making five pairs
of flannel pajama pants
with Christmas dogs on them

When did the holy days become so busy?

It’s 2am now, and I’m tired.
I should say “Merry busymas,”
but I would like to acknowledge
the christened one,
the anointed one,
the holy one
that arrives in the darkest night
with promises of new light

So Merry Christmas, my friends,
in whatever way you celebrate it,
however it means to you.

May the light in you shine out
into the world
bearing the gifts of presence,
of stillness, of peace.

  1. I love the lines,
    “I would like to acknowledge
    the christened one,
    the anointed one,
    the holy one
    that arrives in the darkest night
    with promises of new light.”
    Also love the flannel Christmas dogs! For me, Christmas has become a time to remember that no matter how dark it seems, the light within and around me is always there….

    • Thank you Vincent. I had fun making them. Maybe next year I’ll be able to motivate myself a little earlier, so I won’t be sewing like a maniac on Christmas Eve! Something about the last minute motivates me. I’d like to learn how to pace myself more and get things done with time left over to rest and relax.
