'Tis Christmastime

Good morning! Today, Vivian is sick, so we are holing up inside with lots of Christmas DVDs and schnuggling.

I'm excited to finally begin this blog that I have been dreaming of for a long time. To start, I wanted to share a lovely poem that I found today in a book of poetry that I was gifted from my late uncle. Perfect for this lovely season!

Christmas Everywhere
by Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)

Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!
Christmas in lands of the fir-tree and pine,
Christmas in lands of the palm tree and vine,
Christmas where snow peaks stand solemn and white,
Christmas where cornfields stand sunny and bright.
Christmas where children are hopeful and gay,
Christmas where old men are patient and gray,
Christmas where peace, like a dove in his flight,
Broods o'er brave men in the thick of the fight;
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!

For the Christ-child who comes is the Master of all;
No palace too great; no cottage too small.

Merry Christmas!
