Christmas Cards

"When Christmas comes again
'Mid holly wreaths and snow,
The precious gift of friendship
Takes on an added glow.

With each Christmas card we write,
We see a dear friend's face
And treasure each fond memory
That time cannot erase.

Though many miles may separate
Our paths down through the years,
Dear friends are always close at heart
When Christmastime is here.

Abundant love is tucked inside
Each Christmas card we send,
And with it there's the silent prayer:
God bless you always, friend."

"I treasure all my Christmas cards;
They mean so much to me,
Each one from someone special whom
I'd so much like to see.

Some come from friends I don't oft see,
They live too far away,
Their cards are like a friendly smile
That brightens Christmas Day.

The message each one brings to me
From friends on my own street,
Is like a gift that's wrapped with love,
Each one a yuletide treat.

I'm thankful for these lovely cards
That come to me each year,
These precious notes of friendship with
Their greetings of good cheer.

And I wish for you this Christmas all
The joy the season brings;
Peace, good health, and lots of love,
The best of everything."

Mrs. H,

I love the recipes on your blog. I made the chocolate billionaires and they are a HUGE hit!

On another note, from your Summer Road Trip 2008, did you happen to take HWY. 83 through Kansas, Nebraska up to South Dakota? If you did, you went right by my house!
