A poem to share

I saw this over at Cre8Tiva's blog and I love this poem she shared on her blog along with a lot of other beautiful Christmas traditions. Such a nice place to visit........go visit her.
This Christmas
(although I think it should be for all time not just Christmas!)
Mend a quarrel...
Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust...
Write a love letter...
Share some treasure...
Give a soft answer...
Encourage youth...
Keep a promise...
Find the time...
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed...
Forgo a grudge...
Forgive an enemy...
Listen...
Apologize if you are wrong...
Try to understand...
Flout envy...
Examine your demands on others...
Think first of someone else...
Appreciate...
Be kind...
Be gentle...
Laugh a little...
Laugh a little more...
Deserve confidence...
Take up arms against malice...
Decry complacency...
Express your gratitude...
Go to church...(maybe Nature is your church :-)
Welcome a stranger
Gladden the heart of a child..
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth...
Speak your love...
Speak it again...
Speak it still once again....
"This Christmas" December 1959 issue of McCall's magazine, written by the editors.
Let's speak our love all the time!!!
My focus for Christmas has been on creating art projects for the kids. It's usually this way every year and I don't mind. By the time Christmas comes around, I'm usually pretty tapped out, though... ready for some rest.. and art for myself!
Today we made gingerbread houses from some foam core pieces I disassembled from a center piece. They were already in the shape of a house, so I was good to go on that one. Saved me a trip to the art store. They came out really cute and of course I forgot to take a picture. Next class.
