I thought it was time to send this beautiful, emotional and heartfelt poem around once again for Christmas in order that more readers would be able to see it.
A long-time friend of mine, who I haven’t seen in ages but keeps in touch with me by snail mail, sent me this beautiful poem by an Unknown Author for Christmas.
I wanted to share it with all of you because it touches on how I feel about all who have touched my life in a positive way. Please accept this as a Christmas gift to all of you out there who have supported and helped me in some special way over the past year or so. You know who you are! Thank you!
My Christmas List of Blessings
My Christmas List is more than just a way to keep track of
The special people God has brought into my life to love.
It’s like a treasured scrapbook filled with pleasant memories
Of all the times God’s answered prayers through friends and family.
Every name’s a touchstone that leads to a place and time.
Where God has used another’s heart to reach out and touch mine.
It may have happened years ago or even yesterday.
But every person on my list has changed my life some way
Through simple conversation, a warm hug or a shared meal.
Every person on my list has helped me grow or heal,
Or laugh or love or learn or smile….
The Blessings never end.
As God allows our paths to cross as family and friends.
So please know that this greeting is more than a Christmas wish.
It’s a “thank you” card to God for putting you on my list
Each and everyone whose name
I’ve come to hold so dear…
Those who’ve shown me Christmas joy each day of the year.
Remember: Reading Gives You Wings to Fly!
Thank you for stopping by!
Blessings & love to all for Christmas and into the New Year!
