I have a list of 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 part not of the book they’re written in; but of my very heart.
Fro each stands for someone whose path touched mine, and then left such a print of friendship that I want to touch again. And while it sounds fantastic 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 shaped my life more than you think. Fro once you’ve met somebody the years cannot erase the memory of a pleasant word or friendly face.
So, never think my Christmas cards are 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 one is but a total of the many folks they’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 a 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 GIFT life can give is meeting folks like you. May the Spirit of Christmas that forever and ever endures leave its richest blessings in the heart of you and yours.
