December is the month when we all get to think a bit about our favorite things. Even though Julie Andrews was singing to the children in her charge to soothe them during a storm, the song has become a true Christmas favorite.
These are a few of my favorite things in December…Answers to questions that I’d like to know, Bright colored packages tied with a bow. The sweet sounds that come when a caroler sings – These are a few of my favorite things! Rosy cheeked children with time on their hands, Making snow men and cookies and hanging with friends. Mothers with the patience of angels with wings – These are a few of my favorite things! Hot buttered rum and a cozy warm fire, Time with my family as we all conspire, Happiness only the holiday brings – These are a few of my favorite things!
