Christmas Tins

She sent her love each Christmas
baked into stars and bells,
green trees with colored sprinkles,
red Santa minus his elves.

And maybe we love fruitcake
(but not the store-bought kind)
because Grandma mixed brandied fruits
with all of us on her mind.

Call back those kinder, gentler times.
Let our better angels appear.
Remind us how to really care.
It all begins right here.

Wishing you a simple, joyful Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Chuck and Penny

  1. Merry Christmas, Penny and Chuck! Always look forward to your Christmas "card." Love both the verse and the photo.

    By the way, I LOVE fruitcake (homemade at least). It's my favourite kind. :)

    The gift of love,
    The gift of peace,
    The gift of happiness.
    May all these and more be yours at Christmas and always.
