The Child inside of Me

The Child inside of Me

Each year as Christmas approaches
the child inside of me surfaces.

In my mind I go back in memories
to the Christmases of my youth.

The sights, the lights, the smells,
the tree, the gifts and the excitement
of the big day.

Going to midnight mass and marching
first in line in a procession makes those
memories come alive today.

The giving of gifts was the center
of my thoughts, not the gifts I would
receive.

Showing my love to my younger sisters
and brother gave me happiness in my heart
and theirs.

Christmas is a time for sharing, and letting
the child inside of us give thanks to the
Little Lord Jesus for His precious gift of love,
Himself.

"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love
endures forever." (Psalm 107:1)
