Merry Christmas to All

A Wish         
May He come to you
   this Christmas Eve
In a star or in a song
    painfully sweet,

In a pearl sunset, in
    a tree’s soft glow,
Or in the quiet of
a falling snow,

Bringing Peace on Earth,
love, laughter.  May
Your whole heart swell with joy
                  this Christmas Day.

Monday's Child

I, and generations before me, grew up on rhymes like "Thirty days hath September" and "Monday's child is fair of face."  My niece and nephew don't know these.  They're not alone.  I'm constantly surprised at how many blank looks I get when I mention them.  

Many times, my mother and I have embroidered cute little squares of this poem for baby quilts.  I calligraphed it a while back, just for a fun challenge.  Recently, an Etsy customer asked me to make a 5 x 7 print with watercolor illustration.  I was most pleased with my sunrise behind the trees.

Thanks for visiting!  
Come back soon!
