Today my mailbox had the most beautiful and thoughtful gift in it from one of my dear friends. The verse in the card is perfect, so I'm passing it on to all of you.


Christmas ~ that magic blanket that wraps itself about us,
that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance

It may weave a spell of nostalgia.

Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer,
but it is always a day of rememberance ~
a day in which we remember everything we have ever loved.

The Spirit of Christmas


I have a list of people I know
All written in a book
And every year at Christmastime
I go and take a look
And that is when I realise
That those 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 some time
And in that meeting they've become
A treasured friend of mine
And once you've met some people
The years can not erase
The memory of a pleasant word
Or a friendly face
*

So when I send a Christmas card
That is addressed to you
It's because you're on that list
Of folk I'm indebted to
And you are one of many folk who
In times past I've met
And happen to be one of those
I don't want to forget

And whether I have known you for
Many years or few
In some way you have a part in
Shaping things I do
This, the spirit of Christmas, that
Forever and ever endures
May it leave it richest blessing
In the hearts of you and yours.
