Happy Christmas everyone

Just want to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas.....

I have a list of people
All written in a book -
And every year at Christmas time
I go and take a look.
And that is when I realise
That those names are all 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 of a friendly face.
So when I send an email
That is addressed to you -
It's because you're on that 'Special List'
Of folk I am indebted to.
And you are one of several folk
In times past that I've met -
And happen to be one of those
I don't want ever 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.
So this the Spirit of Christmas
That forever still endures
May it leave its richest blessing
In the hearts of you and yours.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I will see you here afterwards.
