Christmas Red

Life in a huge family is chaotic.

Especially in the holiday bustle,

you have to claim your calm 

where you can find it.

A flutter and glow and jingle

of Christmas red here and there.

Red's not usually 

the calming color, 

like a soothing blue.

But cheerful cherry 

has a certain charm.

Crimson grace,

P.S. This week's P52 theme is "Oh the Rush!"   This post is the counterpoint: what I do to relax in between the rushing.

I also link my blog posts at...


  1. I was raising five teenagers at one point in my life...I can totally relate.

  2. I like small snatches, too. Small messages for the soul.

  3. So true!! It is chaotic in a large family but oh so fun!! The boxes and wrapping all over the floor looks like so much more than it really is!! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas?? Thanks for linking up over at WholeHearted Home in December. I'm back and my linkup is live today, hope to see you again!!
