Twas the Week Before Christmas...and Why You Should Never Put Something In A Place Where It Won't Ever Get Lost.

T'was the week before Christmas and all through the house,
a great mess was stirring and and chaos did rouse.

Guests were arriving, great presents and snow,
In the mail, a gift, from Magic Love Crow!

A painting so lovely, a pointsettia crow in the frost,
Carefully I placed it so as not to get lost.

Her Christmas card hung on the stairs with such care,
And her painting was placed...only I knew where!

The holidays too crazy to post in my blog,
I would wait until later when my brain cleared of fog

And soon, it is quiet, I was ready to post,
I look for the crow painting, and oh no, it's lost!

I searched in the attic, the basement, the tree...
Panic set in, "My painting," cries me!

It's time to put all the decorations away, 
I hope still to find it, I hope it's today!

With all but the last decorations remaining,
my hope of finding the painting is waning.

Just the garland atop of the mantel remains,
my heart skips a little, I feel in my veins

I lift the garland and what do I see,
but Stacy Magic Love Crow's painting looking at me!

Thank you so much, Stacy!  I absolutely love it!  Please click on the links above and have a look at Stacy's blog.  You won't meet a nicer, more generous or kind-hearted person on the web :)  And she's talented, too!
