..........."Lets Take a Moment to Be Thankful""..........

For every accident that never happened,
For every grave illness that was not caught,
For every tornado that never formed.
And for every mean word withheld when we fought,

We can only see what's in front of us,
And can be thankful for what we've got,

But to really, truly embrace gratitude,
We have to also remember,
To always be thankful,
For every "never", "didn't", and "not".....

Merry Christmas Veena,

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
What shall I wish you for Christmas?
This season of joy and delight
The sound of carolers
On a starlit night?

What can I wish you for Christmas?
What is the thing you desire?
Is it health, wealth, or happiness
Or the warmth of a Christmas fire?
What can I wish you for Christmas?

To give you all the joy I am able?
A merry time with a good true friends
Around the fare of a Christmas table?
So much I would wish you for Christmas
Yet only my greeting I send
For all that I have to offer
Is the sincere heart of a friend...

With every good wish..
For the Christmas season
MERRY CHRISTMAS, MY FRIEND

emoticon The days..they have flew, emoticon
And now there's only a few. emoticon
My List of things to do emoticon
It has really grew. emoticon
Gifts I give will be few emoticon emoticon
Many of which are not even new emoticon emoticon

I think they might need glue emoticon
Or be fixed by adding a screw emoticon

But I can't time to be blue, emoticon
As I wonder "Will I ever be through"? emoticon
