My Christmas Card To You

                                                      Every name is a blessing
                                                      upon this list of mine
                                                      somewhere our paths have crossed
                                                      in another place and time

                                                      Perhaps it was years ago
                                                      or only yesterday
                                                      but every person on my list
                                                      has changed my life someway

                                                     A simple hug or conversation
                                                     a friendly smile or meal
                                                     a spoken prayer to God above
                                                     has helped me grow and heal

                                                     Perhaps God went through you
                                                     and wove his magic twine
                                                     in some small or kindly deed
                                                     to touch this heart of mine

                                                     You wished the gray clouds away
                                                     and prayed for rain instead
                                                     I raised my eyes to heaven
                                                     and found a rainbow overhead

                                                    Worldly things that trouble me
                                                     just seems to disappear
                                                     knowing you are always there
                                                     across the miles or near

                                                    You restore my faith, love and hope
                                                     a bond that will never cease
                                                     so many wonderful family and friends
                                                     brings to me an inner peace

                                                    Each day my list continues to grow
                                                    and each name I hold so dear
                                                    each one has brought Christmas joy
                                                    everyday of the year

                                                   This Christmas Card I give to you
                                                   is more than just a wish
                                                   it's a thank you to God above
                                                   for putting you on my list

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I know it's been some time since I've been on here and visited with you all but I've had a rough time with my Adrenal Glands still down and all the Thyroid stuff still going on . But I want to thank all of you for your sweet cards and messages and each one has touched my heart so much. It means so much to me to have such wonderful friends far and near like you all. Many thanks for all of your prayers. They are being answered and let's all hope if it's God's Will next year will be a better one for all. I pray for all of you as well ad you're in my thoughts as well. I'll try to be back and forth as I can because I miss you all so much. May God Continue to Bless each of you. ~Susie~
