God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Happy Birthday Cranky Crow!!!

'Tis a day of making merry!
A day of joy & cheer!
A day of celebration!
A day that's finally here!

Our very own dear Robin
(known as The Cranky Crow)
is celebrating her birthday
& all the world should know

how very empty life would be
without her in our midst.
We wouldn't live a happy life,
we'd merely just exist.  

The brightness of our days would dim.
The sun would cease to shine.
There'd be endless days of mourning.
We'd drown our sorrows with wine.

And there we'd be ... a bunch of winos
Aimlessly going through life.
We couldn't get along with each other,
We'd live in constant strife.

So mamas stop your nursin'!
Daddies lend an ear!
'Tis a day of making merry!
Robin's birthday is here!

Happy Birthday dear friend   : )
