The faces of Christmas.

Another Christmas now is past

a Santa sack full of  memories made.

Of smiles and laughter, and love expressed

as gifts were shared, and games were played.


And carols were sung across the world,

and fires were lit, in houses both big and small

and hearts overflowed with emotions raw, and new

remembering those we’ve lost, but warmed by those held close.


And as the days of Christmas fall silently behind

hope stirs in our hearts, for what is to come.

A new year ahead, an unwritten page,

an adventure waiting,

a new journey…….yet to be taken.





Love Alison xx

  1. My wife and I were just putting up the Christmas decorations and saying it will be over before you know it…and guess what…it is. Time for new year resolutions and Auld Lang Syne…. Happy New Year Alison.

  3. Reblogged this on Through rose tinted glasses. and commented:

    I hope you have all had a really Happy Christmas. Christmas colds have meant some rest days needed so I thought I would re-blog a post from a Christmas past with a few photos of Christmas present added in. Wishing you all a really Happy New Year and thankyou so much for following my Peak District Blog.
