(I can not take credit for writing this... and I'm afraid that I can not give credit to the person who did as I don't remember who shared it w/ me last year... but I wanted to share it w/ all of my Sparkbuddies on this first day of the new year!)
Twas’ the day after Christmas and all through the house
are enough dinner goodies to tempt any mouse.
Momma in her nightie and Dad in his tee
share cookies and candy with brother and me.
The feasting continues all through the week
gobbling down food until we can't speak.
Crackers and dip, the leftover cake,
surveying the 'fridge to see what else to take.
Finally the last of the crumbs we do lick,
amazed we admit that we feel a bit sick.
Turn on the TV and what do we hear?
A cheerful reminder for a Happy New Year!
We toss and turn all through the night -
could this be the year where we get things right?
A New Year ahead we know what to do…
it’s out with the old and in with the new.
Turn on some music, you know how to go
start moving your feet, it’s ok to start slow.
Slowly a grin spreads over your face
when you find yourself able to pick up the pace.
A plan you now see just what you will do
toss out the old fat clothes and buy a few new.
As you change yourself one pound at a time -
you now run, jump and dance, feeling just fine.
A New Year is ahead so get out of that bed…
there's so much to do starting today to see that NEW YOU!
