What a beautiful, beautiful sight.
Tall evergreens dusted in white.
Schools are closed due to falling snow.
We, as parents, have no where to go.
The smell of coffee is drifting in the air.
Kids all bundled in warm clothes to wear.
Hats and gloves. Scarves, coats, and boots.
Baby all wrapped up, in a purple jumpsuit.
They pile out the door, full of glee.
Mom in a chair by the Christmas tree.
I sit nestled between desk and tree,
I watch out my window, just to see.
A long solemn smile sits on my face.
I'm taken aback by this wonderful place.
Wait. Please, just a few minutes more.
The, "BAM!", they throw open the door.
One of them's crying. There's snow on the floor.
"She won't share!"
"I'm hungry!", "We're bored!"
Now, what was I just thanking God for?
