Jingle Bells

Christmas shopping I will go
Red kettles at department stores
Sidewalks covered in snow
Bell-ringers spreading Christmas joy

Volunteers bring Christmas cheers
Give a dollar or two or more
For the needy the bells ring clear
Red kettles need to be filled

Goodwill is in the air
Giving donations is what it's about
For those in despair
It's the Christmas sharing and giving part


"Jingle Bells" for Kim's contest

    Thanks Deb for your congrats. I just got home from the hospital. I'll recoup with SP, that should make me heal faster. I'm not sure when my second surgery will be, probably in April. Warm Smiles Always, Connie
