Christmas Wonder

Twinkle

Crinkle

Present wrapping

Trying

Spying

No kids napping

Sneaking

Peeking

Such little spies

Hidden

Did in

From prying eyes.

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge

***

Surrounded by moving boxes, most everyday use items already packed so it is a hassle. No Christmas decos and shopping in an actual store is not conducive to staying healthy. Two family members had a bout of Covid and I found out my eldest son has serious health issues.

The holidays will come and go another year with all the usual activities curtailed or given up altogether. If I sound discouraged it’s because I am. But the “olden” days of Christmas cheer have gone by the wayside for me with the daily news of violence.

I need to take heart, and think of the trial of my late husband’s grandmother who sat at home with four sons away in WWII.

Those Modern Conveniences🙄

“You know I hate change, and yet you expect me to plunge into setting up this new fangled television with a cable connection? Is there a book, a manual, even? You know I’m not good at this technical stuff. What’s wrong with the radio? We could dance to the radio—you know, romance—dancing cheek to cheek? What do you say, turtle dove?”

Eighty years ago, today – 12-7-1941

“The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service upon the United States against the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, just before 08:00, on Sunday, December 7, 1941.” Wikipedia

“President Roosevelt concluded his speech on December 8 with a firm note to a country horrified and uncertain:


“No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.”


These words proved prophetic, as the Japanese representatives would stand aboard the USS Missouri four years later and sign the Japanese Instrument of Surrender, an unconditional capitulation of their Empire. FDR would not live, however, to see the end of the conflict he so skillfully guided this country through.”
