Merry Christmas

Good Thought For the Holiday

Branch.jpg (11213 bytes)

I have listed folks I know, all written in a book,
and every year at Christmas time 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 one stands for someone who has crossed my path some time,
And in that meeting they’ve become the “Rhythm of the Rhyme”.
And while it sounds fantastic for me to make this claim,
I really feel I am composed of each remembered 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 you’ve met somebody the years cannot erase
The memory of a pleasant word or 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 that list of folks I am 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 way you have had a part in shaping things I do.
And every year when Christmas comes I realize anew,
The biggest gifts that life can give is meeting folks like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever and ever endures,
Leave its richest blessing in the heart of you and yours.  

Merry Christmas and God Bless,
Marlene Slater
