A friend of mine (whaz up Laurie?!) sent me this rhyme. As I read it I thought of how appropriate it is for all the dear people I've met through my computer. I hope you have time to read it during this hectic week.
I have a list of people I know, all logged in my notebook,
And now at Christmas I have gone to take a look.
That is when I realized that these names are a part,
Not of the computer they're stored in, but of my heart.
For each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime,
And in that meeting they've become the rhythm in each rhyme.
While it sounds fantastic for me to make this claim,
I feel that I'm composed of each remembered name.
While you may not be aware of any special link,
Just meeting you has changed my life, a lot more than you think!
For when I do a Christmas E-mail that is addressed to you,
It's because you're on the list of people I'm indebted to.
Whether I have known you for many years or few,
In some way you have been a part of shaping things I do.
Now that Christmas has come, I realize anew,
The best gift life can offer is meeting friends like you.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas full of family, friends, good eats, and some unexpected treats. Thank you for being part of my fun this past year!
Love to you all, Linda (and Tom) McClain
