See Mother, See Mother laugh. Mother is happy, Mother is happy about Christmas. Mother has many plans. Mother is organized. Mother smiles all the time. Funny, Funny Mother. See Mother. See Mother smile. Mother is happy.The shopping is all done.
See the children watch TV. Watch, children Watch. See children change minds. See them ask Santa for different toys. Look, Look, Mother is not smiling. Funny, Funny Mother.
See Mother. See Mother sew. Mother will make dresses. Mother will make robes. Mother will make shirts. See Mother put the zipper in wrong. See Mother sew dress on the wrong side. See mother cut the skirt to short. See mother put the material away until January.
Look, look, see mother take a tranquilizer. Funny, Funny mother. See mother. See mother buy raisins and nuts. See mother buy candied pineapple and powdered sugar. See mother buy flour and dates and pecans and brown sugar and bananas and spices and vanilla.
Look, Look. Mother is mixing everything together. See children press out cookies. See the flour on their elbows. See the cookies burn. See the cake fall. See the children pull taffy. See Mother pull her hair. See mother clean the kitchen with the garden hose. Funny, Funny mother.
See Mother. See mother wrap presents. See mother look for the end of the scotch tape roll. See mother bite her nails. See mother go. See mother go to the store 12 times in an hour. Go, mother go.
See mother go faster. Run, mother run. See mother trim the tree. See mother have a party. See mother make popcorn. See mother wash the walls. See mother scrub the rug.
See; mother tear up the organized plan. See mother forget the gift for Uncle Harold. See mother get hives. Go, mother go. See the far away look in mother’s eyes. Mother has become disorientated. Funny, Funny mother.
It is Christmas morning. See the happy family. See father smile. Father is happy. Smile, father smile. Father loves fruitcake. Father loves Christmas. Father loves all the new ties. Look, Look. See the happy Children. See the children’s toys. Santa was very good to the children. The children will remember Christmas.
See mother. Mother is slumped in a chair. Mother is crying uncontrollably. Mother does not look well. Mother has ugly dark circles under her blood shot eyes. Everyone helps mother to her bed. See mother sleep quietly under heavy sedation. See Mother smile, Funny, Funny mother. Written by: Sandra Gilbert
Reflections: Can you relate?
Although all of us could relate to the Funny, Funny mother story, when the December rush starts, time is the one thing we look for but never have enough of. And when we get a few minutes we are usually too tired to enjoy it.
I finally came to the conclusion I do Christmas shopping faster and better under stress, you know, when in panic, fear or doubt run in circles, scream and shout. It’s surprising how much I can get done under stress. And it’s so much more fun, Remember “Stressed spelled backward spells desserts.” LOL
During this Holiday season, with all the busy preparations we can find the Joy, Rest, and Peace in the Christ of Christmas every day of the year.
Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing
