Christmastime Rhyme and Reason

Whether alone or with loved ones, with or without gifts, Christmas is a time to remember the rhyme and reason to cradle all seasons of living and loving.

Cradle The Season

Poem ©Ruth Cox

Is about living and loving
Nothing more, nothing less
Not about giving, receiving
Presents biggest and best.

Is about memory-making
Events, activities
Not about long bellyaching
Obliged festivity.

Is about freeing and cradling
Relationship building
Not about begrudging, ladling
Lip service unyielding.

Is about heart-spun bakery
Goodness, painstaking work
Not about store-bought fakery
Given, driven berserk.

Dr. Seuss and Grinch

May we each remember Dr. Seuss, his How The Grinch Stole Christmas tale of seasonal thought: "Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas means a little bit more."

Christmastime is not about the gifts we may have or have not. Consider this ... Cradle Christmas!
