The Magic's In You

['Twas the Night Before Christmas]

The Holidays were approaching

My blood pressure was up.

No one was happy,

Not even the pup.

I felt pressured and frantic;

Had not started the baking.

Worst of all was the state

Of the things I was making.

I need gifts by the dozen

To find, wrap and label.

That doesn't included mailings

Or decorating or table.

My breathing got rapid,

My pulse started pounding;

I stopped for a minute,

A small voice was sounding.

"Be aware of your needs,

Start to feel all your feelings;

Nurture yourself and eat well,

You need balance for healing."

"Accept what is Present,

Let go of the Past;

You're important as well,

Don't put yourself last."

Look over your duties,

Keep what's important to you;

Tamper with traditions

In the celebrating you do.

Look carefully with Love,

Gratitude's a must.

If you look at what's missing,

Then your attitude - adjust.

Reach out to others,

Be supportive and kind.

The Peace in your Soul

Will bring Peace of Mind.

Use your Heart as a guide,

And just stop to listen.

Awake, Breathe, Create,

The Magic will glisten.

Love's not in the package,

The lights or the toy,

It's in Peace and in Kindness,

Smile - You'll find JOY!

Happy Holidays! Wishing you Peace, Love and Joy, Lynn Durham
