The spirit of Christmas..

                         To you..

 I have a list of people 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 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.


I wish you THIS....
My Christmas  card to you..Hope is a thing with feathers.

A "Murmuration" - in this sense, it's almost an oxymoron....the word "murmur" connotes a quiet hum, a low-pitched sound. But this MURMURATION is rife with impact and energy breaking the pockets of wind and leaving one speechless. Thank you dearest heart, for this wondrous Christmas blessing to look outward and wonder, to observe and report, to stand in awe of LIFE.

Sending you the same. And Tea Rat must get to the post for he has his gift for Miss M. ready to go.
