Christmas cards! Wrapping! Cookies! And toys!
Ornaments! Concerts! Family! And noise!
Oh what a season to be someone’s mother
Making some magic for your kids and others.

The late nights of wrapping and shopping and baking
Struggling in the dark morning hours of waking
Wishing for peace, but racing instead
Fending off “helpers” who won’t go to bed.
