#GPElfie Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas The Night Before Christmas #CureGP 2016 
Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house not a creature was stirring in this motility disorder of a mess not even a mouse! The stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that Saint Nicholas the one you know that new #GPNation would soon be there .. The children were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of sugarplums danced in their heads along with thoughts of curing their mama of all of the problems of motility disorder’s. Mama and her kerchief along with her (GP / migraine go away) smelling salts and I and my cap had just settled down for a long winters nap.

When out on the lawn arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. 

The moon on the breast of the New fallen snow gave a luster of mid-day to the objects below. 

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer. With a little old driver so lively and Quick dressed in green was our St Nick !!!

I knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick who knew all about #GPNation #GPElfie 

More rapid than eagles his courses they came and he whistled and shouted and called them by name –

Now, #IBS! Now, #Gastroparesis! Now, #CIPO !! and #SBBO!!! 

On, #Crohns!! On, #Barrett_s! On, #Colitis! And #CVS

From the beginning of the mouth to the ending of the bottom may all of us be healed from the moment our first bite to when it leaves our bodies in the downstairs – Dash away – Dash away #CureGP on this very night!! 

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky, 

So up to the house-top the coursers they flew

with a sleigh full of toys and Saint Nicholas too! 

And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof the prancing and pawing of each little hoof y’all #GanderHealed was leDibg the way with his illuminating green nose! As I pictured the over #5MillionGPStrong being healed,,, and was turning around down the chimney Saint Nicholas came with a bound🎅🏼 He was dressed all in fur, from his head

To his foot. And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; A bundle of toys, pens, Awareness cards, & pamphlets he had flung on his back. 

And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. 

His eyes how they twinkled! His dimples how Merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry. His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath.

He had a broad face and a little round belly that shook, when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly (yes green for #GP jelly= #Green4GP #Gastroparesis is #GP a #MotilityDisorder) 
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf. 

(He was in green and somehow had heard about the #GPElfie game! He was all about giving joy, love, cheer, and goodwill to others!! Of course he was going to help us!!! ) 
And I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself. A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head, 

Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread; 

Hey spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk, and laying a finger aside of his nose,

And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose. 

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team he gave a whistle, and away they all flew like the down on a thistle. But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight — “Happy Christmas to all into all a good night! Sending cure GP prayers & advocacy to all & everyone all be healed good wishes to you and healing to all my dear’s Merry Christmas & A Blessed New Year!!! I pray to see you next year in red or green whichever it be – #GPElfie & #GanderHealed will keep me abreast of all that is going on Merry Merry Love, Joy, Comfort, GoodWill, Peace, & happiness be it red or green this magical time of the year will always be  magical!🎅🏼🕯🌲🎅🏼🕯🌲❤️🕯🌲🌲🕊🎅🏼 He is the biggest bestest Elfie of them all!
