Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

A wonderful, Merry Christmas wish for you
And a Peaceful, Healthy, Happy New Year too
May you love, and be loved, and laugh, and smile
And Be granted patience and grace for every trial

May the winds and storms calm around you
And the warmth of Christmas touch your soul
May the Christmas Spirit stay all year through
With love, kindness, and understanding your goal

May you and yours have peace this holiday
And safe journeys wherever you roam along the way
