Merry Christmas!

Salisbury Cathedral

This poem sums up my thoughts and hopes for all of my friends here.

My Christmas Wish To YOU

By Catherine Pulsifer 

If I could wish a wish for you, 
it would be for peace
, faith, and happiness 
not only at Christmas, 
but for the whole year through! 

I wish that there always be food on your table. 
That you always give to those less fortunate. 
May you always take time to share, 
and thank those who have blessed

I wish for time, so you may reflect 
on the blessings that you have, 
and that you express your love

to those who are dear to you. 

May you never feel lonely, 
because there are those who care. 
That you realize: you are special, 
you are unique, you make a difference, 
not only at Christmas, but all year! 

I wish for your thoughts to be positive ones, 
that you never quit, that you never give up, 
and that you continue to learn. 

I wish for the love, and peace of God

to be yours always.

    1. Just wanted to tell you that I"m taking a blog break for awhile, but the girls will still post as often as they can, which will probably be every couple weeks. Even though I'm taking a break from posting, I will continue to visit your charming blog. It is heartwarming, and I appreciate it and YOU, Martha Ellen.

      Happy New Year!
