Thas the night before Christmas and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.

My dog Mugsy laying in his basket with care.

Hoping to grab any bones that I would drop near.

With my self in my jammas, and noone quite near.

It seemed that this Christmas would once not be so dear.

But I looked to the left and I looked to the right,

was about to settle down for a short winter night.

But what to my wondering eyes would appear,

But a e-mail from Shelby and Ryan

written so dear.

Their wishes for presents,

for Santa to hear.

How I wish, that I could hold them again this year.

My eyes did glisten,

the sides they did leak.

For my children were thinking of me

for the many time this young week.

Then as I looked to the bed, and an early nights rest,

but then I was startled by an IM request.

My friends had hit money and wanted me to rail,

On Surflexus and Katitude were the words I did wail.

But I did wonder,

as I was to turn down the lights.

Was I blessed to be alone

in my own Lubbock home?

But as I did ask, the texts I did recieve,

for me to enjoy, this wonderful Christmas Eve.

So as I turn the computer to standby,

and I turn off the light.

Merry Christmas to all,

and to all a good night.


May your hearts be filled with joy this holiday season.  May your gifts be plentiful, may your love be overflowing, may the fights be few and the miracles ever growing.  May hatchets be buried, may your troubles be few and may your life be furfilled with friends. 

As I remember the miracles of the things I thought I would never be able to do. 

I remember that you, were right beside me too. 

May your wishes of Christmas, Haunakah, Kwanzah and any other holiday come true.

From my family to yours, Merry Christmas.

Love to my family, Luck to my friends and Lollipops to my kiddos.  I will see you soon.
