Christmas Letter:



I have a list of folk's I know, all written in a book, and every year at
Christmas, I go and take a look.
And that is when I realize that these names are a part,not of the book
they're written in, but of my very heart.
For each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime, and
in that meeting they've become the 'rhythm and rhyme' .
And while it sounds fantastic for me to make this claim, I really feel
that I'm composed of each and every name.
And while you may not be aware , of any special link, just meeting you
has shaped my life , more than you can think.
For once I've met somebody, the years cannot erase, the memory of a
pleasent word or of a friendly face.
So never think my Christmas cards are just a mere routine, of names
upon a christmas list, forgotten in between.
For when I send a Christmas card that is addressed to you, it's
because you're on the list of folk's , that I'm indebted to.
For I am but a total of the many folk's I've met, and you happen to be
one of those I prefer not to forget.
And whether I've known you for many years or few, in some way's you have
had a part of shaping thing's I do.
And every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew, the very best
gift that life can give, is knowing folk's like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever endures, leave it's
richest blessing in the heart of you and yours.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!! From my family to yours!! Cheers!!
