thread of revelation: Wrapping

bluesandbarebones:

I wrapped up all your presents
I hope you like the bows
I got the ball you wanted
And the rocket ship that glows

But as I finished wrapping
It then occurred to me
How nothing that meant anything
Was underneath that tree

The toys will soon be broken
Books read and out of sight
We’ll take down all…

Oh, bluesandbarebones, this is beautiful! I need to be sure to wrap those extra presents up for my two sons, ages 11 and 8, as well. Sometimes as I remind them to put their toothbrushes back in the holder, or clear their dishes from the table, I think to myself, “Their wives will thank me one day.” But I’m not in a hurry for that day to come. I love the gift of their grins and jokes and laughter and their hugs and snuggles and am not in a rush to share them. *at the moment my oldest son is awake before 7:00 a.m. and explaining to me the two ways to attack someone with a sword in Halo 2…Merry Christmas Eve to me.* ~ Janean 😉
