Here's hoping Christmas was the blessing it was meant to me. No matter that you didn't get to do... the yearly traditions, that you didn't buy as many gifts, that you didn't send your Christmas cards for the first time in 16 years... that it was a time of reflection and joy. Here is praying that the losening up after the Holidays is only in our pants :) Merry Christmas!
It's a feast, a gluttenous gorging
of silent this and Holy that
Full to bursting from all of those
good Christian calories. So
we do what any celebratory diner does
and secretly unbutton, unzip
because we've found
we are quite literally too big
for our spiritual britches.
