Click here to visit Barbara Haywood Barbara Haywood 17 December at 18:53: I was chatting with K.W. [SoundEagle] today and he was encouraging me to get into the Christmas spirit. So I decided to put up a few decorations after all. So I got out the Christmas Tree we gave my mother the last year before she died in the Nursing home. We gave her the Christmas Tree to make her feel more at home. Within days there were little Christmas Trees popping up in all the residents rooms. The staff said they had never seen this happen before. So now our kitchen is decorated with a pretty tree and Orchids.

Merry Christmas to all QOI members. ❤ B

Special Poem &
❄ Snowflakes ❅

I have a list of folks I know all written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time I go and take a look.
And that is when I realize that these names are of a part,
Not of the book in which they’re written, but of my very heart.

❄ ❅ ❆

Each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime,
And in that meeting they’ve become the rhythm of the rhyme.
And while it sounds fantastic of me to make this claim,
I really feel that I’m composed of each remembered name.

❄ ❅ ❆

And while you may not be aware of any special link,
Just meeting you has shaped my life more than you can think.
For once you’ve met somebody, those years they can’t erase,
The memories of a pleasant word or of a friendly face.

❄ ❅ ❆

So never think that my Christmas greeting is just a mere routine,
Of names upon a Christmas list forgotten in between.
For when I send a Christmas greeting that is addressed to you,
It’s because you’re on that list of folks whom I am indebted to.

❄ ❅ ❆

For I’m but a total of the many ones I’ve met,
And you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget.
And whether I’ve known you for many years or few,
In some way you had a part in shaping things I do.

❄ ❅ ❆

So every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
The biggest gift that life can give is meeting someone like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever and ever endures,
Leave its richest blessings in the heart of you and yours.
