Bloglove No. 5 - Christmas Love

If there's anything I would like to really thank for because it made me a better person, that is to blogging. I once kept a diary to keep up with my feelings and with all the things my whirlwind life includes.

Now, I no longer use a diary because I felt that it was too "teen-agerish" for me to do so. I did not keep journal or so, I just don't feel like it.

But thanks to blogging. It has opened me up a wee bit more to the world. I write what is in my heart and what is in my mind. I haven't really thought of keeping my identity, because I feel that when I do so, it's just not opening up.

Blogging is one of my outlets. A mixture of my emotions. What I feel, what I hear, what I want.

And through blogging, I have made friends who has showered me with love, with ears to listen to, with eyes to read about my rants and raves, with comments to keep me sane. And with very special love to cheer me up, especially during this special time of the year.

I just want to let you know that I love you guys, you who know me inside and out through my posts. I just want to let you know that I wish you all the best for 2009.

These are just some of the love my blogger friends sent me. The thought is very heart-warming guys. I love you, you sending me this love made me smile so wide.

Here's a poem I would like to dedicate to everyone in my blogroll.

A Christmas Poem
by: Helen Steiner Rice

I have a list of folks I know, all written in a book
And every year when Christmas comes, I go and take a look,
And that is when I realize that these names are a part
Not of the book they are written in, but really of my heart

For each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime,
And in the meeting they've become the rhythm in each rhyme
And while it sounds fantastic for 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 changed my life a lot more than you think
For once I've met somebody, the years cannot erase
The memory of a pleasant word or of a friendly face

So never think my Christmas cards are just a mere routine
Of names upon a Christmas list, forgotten in between,
For when I send a Christmas card that is addressed to you,
It is because you're on the list that I'm 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 years or few,
In some ways you have a part in shaping things I do

And every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
The best gifts life can offer is meeting folks like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever endures
Leave its richest blessings in the hearts of you and yours.

from my family to yours!

Happy Holidays to Everyone!

Love Always,
