…For My Followers! (and a Fertilizer Friday Announcement)

I am so happy you stopped by!
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Due to the Holidays being so very close, I have decided to forfeit our weekly flaunt until Jauary 6, 1012. Fertilizer Friday is getting a teensy little break!
This is a very busy time of year for everyone, and with friends and family gathering together…time is of the essence!!!
(¯`•._) MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!(¯`•._)
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
(¯`•._)HAPPY NEW YEAR!! (¯`•._)
I found this little poem online, and thought I would share it all with you today. It is my “card” to everyone this year, as, I DID write out all the beautiful cards, addressed all of the envelopes, and even added postage to most of them. I then proceeded to pack them into a box…and have NO idea where that box is!!! Therefore…you will not receive a Christmas card from me this year….No one will…but maybe…with any luck…I will locate those cards …and you will be getting TWO cards from me next year! haha!
The poem reads:

A Christmas Poem

by Helen Steiner Rice

I have a list of folks I know, all written in a book
And every year when Christmas comes, I go and take a look,
And that is when I realize that these names are a part
Not of the book they are written in, but really f my heart
For each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime,
And in the meeting they've become the rhythm in each rhyme
And while it sounds fantastic for me to make this claim,
I really feel that I'm composed of each remembered name
And while you may not be aware of any special link
Just meeting you has changed my life a lot more than you think
For once I've met somebody, 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 Christmas list, forgotten in between,
For when I send a Christmas card that is addressed to you,
It is because you're on the list that I'm indebted to
For I am but a total of the many folks I've met,
And you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget
And whether I have known you for many years or few,
In some ways you have a part in shaping things I do
And every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
The best gifts life can offer is meeting folks like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever endures
Leave its richest blessings in the hearts of you and yours.

I will be back very soon with more of my renovation posts!!! Thanks for stopping in today, and for the comments filled with wonderful feedback!
Until Next Time…Happy Holidays!!!
*)*)*) to my three winks: Love me or hate me, both are in my favor..If you love me, I'll always be in your heart..If you hate me, I'll always be in your mind ~Shakespeare~ I wish you all that you so richly deserve for 2012... hugs!

Tootsie garden goddess, you always make me smile.
You pages are full of fun, I often linger for more than quite while.

Santa’s on his way now so I had better pop off for a while!

Merry Christmas and may 2012 bring you lots of happiness and laughter.
