finders-keepers

(just in time for) it’s the monday giggles….

Did you ever wonder what happens amongst the elves after the toys have all been delivered for Christmas Day?

Why, of course, Joy and great Merriment are then made!

These elves may not be on a shelf but they’re as cute as can be –

and they have a message to share borrowed from their friends at Home, Faith and Family.

Dear Believing Ones Who Watched for Me,

Another year is ending, it’s time for me to fly

tonight I’ll leave with Santa, I guess this means goodbye.

Please don’t be upset at this news or scream, fight, or cry.

For I’ll be resting from our fun until next July!

I know Christmas will return again in the blink of an eye,

So remember the rules of being good and don’t tell a lie.

Next time we see each other, you’ll be a little taller

I don’t grow at all you see, but to you I might seem smaller.

I’ll still watch over all you do, and make my notes all year

as time goes by real quickly, I’ll soon reappear.

Even though you can’t see me, and we are spending time apart

always keep the spirit of Christmas alive inside your heart.

You’ll have loads of new adventures from school in September,

then bike races, swimming lessons, and wow it’ll again be December.

Listen to your parents, and make sure you do your best

to be kind and generous, and always be nice…and well, you know the rest.

I’ve had so much fun again this year, I was really over the moon

I can’t wait to come back and play again with you real soon!

Love from your favorite elves,

Jelly-Bean, Lotte-Pop and Moon

hugs n’ blessings for the joy still to be found in these 12 Days of Christmas!

    1. Hugs to you, Oneta for your kind compliments and well-wishes. Oh, how the truth near the end produced a great giggle. I for one am done with the “expectations” of life (at least I am making an attempt to let them go.🤣) There is only one I aim to please – and I pray that I may do so “well” as can be in the upcoming year of 2023! (I seem to be on a rhyming track as of late. 🤣) 😘😘😘
