Sacrifice : Lopez Christmas Love

S taying up late making 
tamales
A n afternoon poker game
C ramming together in a small 
house
R eminding the young ones 
how bad we used to have it
I nclement weather can’t keep 
siblings apart
F amily getting together, 
sharing great memories
I ntroducing my son to cousins 
he has never met
C radling the young ones as 
they try to wait up for Santa
E xpressing our love through 
cards, gifts, calls, sweets, and 
visits
