Haiku Friday --- 'Tis the Season

Shopping and wrapping
Programs, dinners, gatherings
Decorate the house

*To do* list is long
As each thing done a check
The list grows shorter

Stop. Do you hear it?
The soft rustling of wings
Angels sing on high

The season of joy
But only if we listen
Pause and be still

Then celebrate with
The gifts, the friends, your family
A Christ child was born.



This was made by Benjamin last year.


A footnote on Rudy. He is doing remarkedly well. He will possibly be dimissed from the hospital this week-end. He was moved into a room yesterday afternoon and got to visit on the phone with his classmate when his teacher called. He told them that he was ready to come back to school. That sounded good. We don't know for sure what the future holds so we continue to pray for the labs to come back with something that can be treated easily.
