Advent — December 5, 2017

(In A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge is taken by the Ghost of Christmas Past to a Christmas party thrown by his first employer Fezziwig)

Lover of parties,
good food and holiday decorations,
who strung the first and biggest
outdoor light display,
and organized a flash mob of angels,

thank you for people
who have thrown parties for me,
who have invited me
to eat, drink and laugh
to get over myself and even dance
just when I felt awkward.

You have put fezziwigs in my path
and I learned to be generous,
and to stop working
all the time, all the time.

God, sometimes I forget
how much joy is so very simple,
if I am willing to take it,

and how much happiness I can share,
(not to speak of Merry Christmas)
all around me
just by opening my hand,
my heart, my mouth,
and tapping my two left feet.
