18 Days of Christmas - The Thirteenth Day



From now until Christmas day I am treating you to foisting upon you our collection of Christmas poems. If I made our cards that year I'll post a picture of that as well. If you missed yesterday's poem, click on the 18 Days of Christmas button in my sidebar. The way you can tell who wrote which poem is to note whose name is listed first at the end.

This is the year of my mother's kidney cancer. She was diagnosed in April and had surgery to remove a kidney in May. Unfortunately they weren't able to remove all the cancer. By the time we were writing the Christmas poem this year the cancer had moved to her liver.

  1. Oh I know that was a very hard year.. as every one after it is also. Holidays are so hard when we miss spending them with loved ones. I have one cd of Dolcimer music and there is something magical about it. You have reminded me to go find it. Hope you have great Sunday Dana!

  2. Oh Dana, that must have been such a difficult year. I'm so sorry.

  3. Mike and the music saved your Christmas of that year. And there's always God to turn to.

  4. This has been a lovely series of posts, Bug. I guess my personal favorite so far is the one written in 2001. Thank you so much for sharing these with us!
