It was 1990. I was 11 years old and in the 5th grade.
My school had a Poetry Parade Competition.
I submitted a poem and was one of the 8 winners of the contest.
My poem was read by Tiny Tim during the production of The Christmas Carol.
I share this poem with you today, because, it is what my family is trying to live out this Christmas and I hope for many more Christmas' to come. May it inspire you during this season of giving.
May God Bless You and do something nice for someone today and every day.
A CHRISTMAS CAROL POEM
I was walking down the snowy street;
When I saw someone I'd like to meet.
She was dressed in ragged clothes;
She sat on a bench in a worried pose.
She turned her face and started to cry;
I asked her what was wrong and why.
She said, "I don't have any friends on this Christmas Day";
So she walked with me the rest of the way.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND PLEASE SHARE
I am a mother of 4 small children. I am happiest when I am busiest and if the kids don't keep me busy enough I need projects to fill my days. I love Jesus and I love my family and I love the chaos around me for it brings the calm.
