Just a Little Mouse...

Dear Santa, I am just a little mouse, I'm quiet and so shy... My Mama says I'm awfully good, I know I always try! I make my bed, I sweep the floor, I hang up all my clothes... I never fuss, I clean my plate and always wipe my nose. I would like some tasty nuts and berries oh so sweet... A wind up car, a woolen hat and slippers for my feet. A boat that sails, a bouncy ball, a horse that neighs and rocks... Some peppermints & bubble gum, a pair of red-striped socks. But Santa please remember the little mice so sad... The ones who have no nice warm homes, no Mama dear, no Dad. Maybe I should ask you now to give my gifts away... To wee ones who are hurting so & have forgotten how to play. I have enough old Santa dear & think that I should share... With all of those who need my help, to show them that I care. For many mice go without and feel so by themselves... They fear they are forgotten by you Santa, & your elves. Please give a toy to bring a smile to each sad, little mouse... Some Christmas cheer to bring some joy to every tiny house. (C) Susie Q 2006
This holiday season, please remember the little ones who go without... Every child should receive a gift at Christmas! Your local Toys For Tots campaign is in full swing!

Love the little story Sue! And this is a wonderful reminder of the need to GIVE this season. I think it is needed more than ever this year.
Hugs to you my sweet friend!

So sweet. And a bit sad too. Since we all know there are families everywhere who need a little help at Christmas, especially this year. Thanks sweet SusieQ for the reminder.

Hugs!

Thanks, sweet Bunny Lady, that was a great reminder of those who need our help. We 'adopt' a family every year at work and also buy necesseties for other families in our community. It's always been a really big draw at this time of year. They get tons of clothes, food, toiletries and toys donated. xxoo

Thanks for the reminder! We have several projects at our church to help those in need - maybe we need to give a little extra this year. Sally

Very nice reminder to think of others. Our church does a Angel Tree. There are paper ornaments on there with descriptions of a wishlist of those who don't have enough to celebrate the holidays.
