A Christmas Poem!!!

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

I received this in an email and it touched my heart. To all the wonderful spark friends, I wish you a Merry Christmas. Thinking of you and hope that this is a wonderful, magical time for you and your families.

There is a list of folk, I know, all written in the book.

And every year at Christmas time, I go and have a look.

And that is when I realize that these names are a part,

Not of the book they are written in, but of my very heart.

For each name stands for someone who has touched my

life sometimes.

For once you have known someone, the years cannot erase,

The memory of a pleasant word, or of a friendly face.

So never think my Christmas cards are just a mere routine,

Of names upon a list, to be forgotten between.

For when I send a Christmas card that is addressed to you,

It is because youíre on the list that Iím indebted to.

And whether Iíve known you many years or even just a few.

In some ways you have had a part in shaping things I do.

So every year when Christmas comes, I just realize anew,

The biggest gift that God can give,

Is knowing folks like you.

    I didn't have time to address, write in and mail my Christmas cards, so that they would arrive the 24th or the 26th. So I addressed, wrote in them and mailed them on the second day of Christmas, which was of course the 26th. In Belgium, I'll mail them up until the 6th of January, although New Years best wishes could be mailed up until the end of January.
I love thinking about my friends past and present thanks for the thought, Mary Anne. and Merry Christmas (on the 4th day of Christmas) and Happy New year.
