The Zebra Pit staff and our families would like to wish you and yours a bright and beautiful holiday. Instead of our usual Wednesday chronic illness post, Pamela Jessen has written some lovely poetry for the community to enjoy!
Snow falling, crisp winter air
Twinkling lights are everywhere
Trees adorned, candles lit
Every year, we wait for it
Presents wrapped, children fed
Sugarplum dreams when we’re all in bed
Favourite stories, traditions too
Mistletoe and a kiss for you
Happy kids with gifts galore
Some from Santa, some from store
Eggnog, cookies, one more feast
The Grinch, himself and a carved Roast Beast
Feeling thankful, blessed as well
Lots of memories and stories to tell
Another year, we made it through
You with me and me with you
by Pamela Jessen
