"what would you like for Christmas?"
it makes me feel slightly uncomfortable
of course I'm always happy to receive a gift ~ who isn't?
and I'm grateful to anyone who takes time to think of me
it's that time of year when people around me are spending, gathering
"buy two gifts get one free"
it makes me think of those who can't afford
I don't remember writing Christmas lists as a child ~ I probably did
we didn't have much and I have nothing but good memories
an annual each, a festive stocking full of sweets and a game for the whole family to share and play
after dinner on Christmas Day
the prize was a chocolate that hung from the Christmas tree
all winners ~ no losers
my Papa worked hard as a milkman
each week, a few pennies from his wage packet went into a special fund
the milkmen and the dairy hosted a Christmas Party for the children
a pantomime at the local theatre then a disco at a nearby hall ~ complete with a snack,
a visit from Santa and a gift
we thought it was fantastic!
I didn't want for much ~ I didn't ask for much
I have everything I need ~ it's good to brush it off and remember that
I don't think this was our kitten but I
obviously enjoyed the moment
