From Our Home To Yours.

Well guys, it’s that time of year again…another year is almost at a close and for many of us, it is a sentimental time.   We think of those we know and love, we get in touch with friends and family and if you are like our family, you think of those less fortunate than you, with generosity.   I just wanted to take a moment to extend warm wishes from our family to yours for a safe and very Merry Christmas!  
Before I let you run off to your Christmas Celebrations, I wanted to share with you, a little something.   A few years ago I came across this poem that was written by Helen Steiner Rice,  and it is just so very fitting, that I am going to share it with you again.  


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.

It seems that this is a year of learning for us all…and Cowboy and I are NO exception to this rule.   This year we learned that no matter how busy our lives are with work and everything else….to NEVER wait until the week before Christmas to shop for gifts for the ones on our list!  Never again…lol…and I don’t think I need to explain why.  Smile

Until Next Time…Merry Christmas!

*)*)*)… I'd rather be rejected for being who I am than accepted for being someone I'm not.  At least I don't have to keep track of my act...I can just be me!  Can you? When one does just a little too much to convince, the truth REALLY shines through.   Just Sayin’
