Christmas Spirit

Box after box, young Sally opened

Was empty, each seal already broken

Crumpled wrapping paper littered the floor

As Sally looked at her parents asking for more

“All the boxes are empty. I got nothing at all!”

They watched their daughter’s smile fade and fall

“Oh, dear Sally, please don’t be sad.

This isn’t the worst thing. In fact, let’s be glad.

We’re here together and blessed with health!

Having many things does not equal wealth.

You see, we’re the wealthiest family celebrating today

Because no one can rob our Christmas spirit away!”

With a hug and a kiss, Sally immediately knew

Her parent’s words were the truest of true

Thanks for stopping by!
