Its a cold blue sky but
the sun is shining
Our son and his wife are hosting the family gathering
A few more chores before we go
Wrap some packages, stir up the salad.
I am bringing Mama's Macaroni Salad
Christmas is a joyous holiday
Yet its always melancholy for me
A hold-over from childhood
now coupled with other losses
Our job though
is to put on our happiest faces
and rush forth spreading cheer.
Thinking of the best of times
that's where I direct my thoughts
