    That is the name of the poem I am going to paste in here. Had me think of many of you who have given me support and helped me through some really tough times.
    Even though I have not met any of you as of yet, seems as if I have. Support can be so helpful especially coming from people who have been there done that. Don't know who wrote this poem.


    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 a part
    Not of the book they've written in, but of my very heart.

    For 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 for me to make this claim
    I really feel I am composed of EACH REMEMBERED NAME

    And while you may not be aware of any special link
    Just meeting you shaped my life more than you can think
    Or once you've met somebody, the years cannot erase
    The memories of a pleasant word or of a friendly face

    So never think 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 I am indebted to

    For I am but a total of the many folks I've met
    And you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget
    And whether I have known you for many days or few,
    In some way you had a part in shaping things I do

    And every year when Christmas comes I realize anew
    The biggest gift life can give is meeting folks like you
    And may the spirit of Christmas that forever and ever endures
    Leave its richest blessing in the heart of You and Yours

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
