The Telling

Post  Teresa Jane Price on Wed Nov 30 2011, 11:21

There neath the decorative tree,
Twas but a wonder of a gift for me.
A black orb with a speck of white
With an eight centered just right.
Why Santa leave me this
I asked while shaking the gift?
A mere ten years old twas I,
All excited by the good christmas vibe,
As my mom smiled with delight
And Santa twas long gone into the night.
So into the eight I asked,
"Why is dad sitting there all in laughs?"
So with that question, a shake and then a flip,
There neath the small glass eye, an answer floated.
"Do not know," it read,
Leaving me scatching my head.
But as the moments fleed,
The magical eight ball became a joy to me.
Oh, what fortunes did I tell
With each question, shake and reveal.
Years passed, and this gift I kept,
Till a fire broke the glass and melted the eight.
Heart broken twas I to lose this gift
And with it a good memory of Christmas.
So, the following Christmas Eve night.
My mom gave unto me a magical surprise.
Ya see, at ten I twas poor
And this twas all my parents could afford.
My mom understood and again gave this gift,
Reminding, the littlest things make Christmas.

Ah, the magic of Christmas. We come from a time when it didn't take much. We were more innocent, thankful and happy for the thoughtfulness of little things. Good reminiscing, Tee:-) Good to see ya!

Hugs, bev

Ah yes...the simple things in life are usually the best...
I was always happy with a little bag of chocolate money and a few nuts and a satsuma....xx

So very sad that as we mature, the magic of the Holidays are lost until we can once again relive those moments when we have kids. Loved the walk down memory lane.
