January Poem

One of my favourite gifts from Carl this year was a bundle of 12 envelopes tied together with gold ribbon. There is an envelope for each month, and in each envelope is a card with a handwritten poem about that month that Carl chose out for me. I was tempted to open them all and read them in one go, but I have decided to read them one by one in their appropriate month. What a wonderful gift, and one that I am going to share with you...

January
January opens
The box of the year
And brings out days
That are bright and clear
And brings out days
That are cold and gray
And shouts 'Come see
What I brought today'

This is my least favorite time of year. The stretch between January and Easter. It's four months until the next long weekend :(

That poem idea is so sweet, your hubby is a keeper!
