He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so?"
"It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!"
"It came without packages, boxes or bags!"
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn’t come from a store."
"Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!"
We also had the chance to watch the Grinch Who Stole Christmas over the weekend.
These few lines from the end always stand out to me.
I should be old enough to realize that Christmas isn’t about presents or decorating or any of that other stuff, but these lines still catch me off guard a little each time.
Hopefully these lines do them same for you. A reminder that Christmas is more than all of the stuff.
Make it a great Christmas.
