He had a problem spilling food,
And humbly, he confessed it,
Until at last she sewed for him
The gift that he requested.
He opened it to OOH’s and AHH’s:
It made him very happy,
While all of us admitted then
That apron DID look snappy.
But inwardly, I had to sigh,
While wishing he would share it:
This habit to wear spills and stains
I happened to inherit.
Thus I worked hard to quell the urge,
To pinch the only Christmas gift
I ever thought of stealing!

May God give you lots of joy and laughter this Christmas!  Most of all, may He open your eyes to the gift that Jesus is to us, and wants to be to everyone!
