A Child's Christmas Eve Dream

Last night I had a lovely dream, but strange as it could be,
For on the hill beside our house, stood a great Christmas tree.
It glowed with lighted candles, right at the top a lighted star,
And round it dancing in a ring, children from lands afar.
Polite little English girls, Swiss boy's with funny skis,
Dutch children in queer wooden shoes. joined hands with shy Chinese.
Turkish lads is tassled fez, tots from France, Greece and Poland.
Laughing as the children do, in the safety of a free land,
Perhaps my dream's a prophecy, of Christmas to be,
When little children everywhere, can sing because they are free.
I surely wish with all my heart, this day of Jesus birth,
That peace and love and happiness, soon cover all the earth.

I would like to wish all my blogging friends==A very Merry Christmas and may all your dreams come true, love=Margaret.

Dear Margaret, I haven't forgotten you. Seems about all I get done is make an entry on my blog, then check out Facebook and it's time to do something in the house or run an errand or go see some doctor, either Abe or myself. tomorrow morning I go in early for fasting blood work. Merry Christmas, Love, Patty

Dear Margaret ~ Just a quick thank you for your comments on my brother's updates on my health.
I am so glad to be home after over 6 weeks in hospital, pretty weak, but working at getting stronger with physio ad exercises.
THanks so much my friend for your prayers and good wishes and I needed all the help I could get, so
every good wish was appreciated. So thank you Margaret. Love, Merle.
