    The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world's busy life and become more interested in people than in things. Thomas S. Monson

    Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

    Being hopeful is more important than being realistic. For reality is colored by our perceptions, opinions, and the ever fragile human emotions. But hope has the power to elevate us. Hope turns our eyes away from the visible and allows us to see the miracle that we need, while it is still far off.

    The Little Orphan Annie


    James Whitcomb Riley

    Little Orphan Annie’s come to my house to stay.
    To wash the cups and saucers up and brush the crumbs away.
    To shoo the chickens from the porch and dust the hearth and sweep,
    and make the fire and bake the bread to earn her board and keep.
    While all us other children, when the supper things is done,
    we sit around the kitchen fire and has the mostest fun,
    a listening to the witch tales that Annie tells about
    and the goblins will get ya if ya don’t watch out!

    Once there was a little boy who wouldn’t say his prayers,
    and when he went to bed at night away up stairs,
    his mammy heard him holler and his daddy heard him bawl,
    and when they turned the covers down,
    he wasn’t there at all!
    They searched for him in the attic room
    and cubby hole and press
    and even up the chimney flu and every wheres, I guess,
    but all they ever found of him was just his pants and round-abouts
    and the goblins will get ya if ya don’t watch out!!

    Once there was a little girl who always laughed and grinned
    and made fun of everyone, of all her blood and kin,
    and once when there was company and the old folks was there,
    she mocked them and she shocked them and said, she didn’t care.
    And just as she turned on her heels and to go and run and hide,
    there was two great big black things a standing by her side.
    They snatched her through the ceiling fore she knew what shes about,
    and the goblins will get ya if ya don’t watch out!!

    When the night is dark and scary,
    and the moon is full and creatures are a flying and the wind goes Whoooooooooo,
    you better mind your parents and your teachers fond and dear,
    and cherish them that loves ya, and dry the orphans tears
    and help the poor and needy ones that cluster all about,
    or the goblins will get ya if ya don’t watch out!!!
