Merry Christmas! May your New Year be adventurous and bright!




My wish for Christmas is simple...

I want the person reading this to be healthy happy and loved.

Wishing everybody who sees  this, snowflakes friendship and winter cheer!



Here is a precious Christmas poem I found on Facebook several years ago... Somebody had digitized and shared it...Poem was written by the author in 1953 to be given to his wife on Christmas day..








The Snowflake


*************

Hers had been a humble life.


Never at any time had she been or pretended to be anything but a little SNOWFLAKE.


But as she looked back she saw that she had been useful,


That always when she had been needed, she had been there to fulfill her purpose.


To have helped a little girl with red cap and red mittens to be in time for school was not to have been born in vain.


Even to have been a part of the nose of a snowman that made people laugh and forget their troubles was useful.


She saw that all her life she had been called upon to serve.


She had watered a wild flower,


sheltered a frog,


speeded a fish,


turned the miller's wheel,


put out a fire,


and held up the bows of the largest liner.


How thoughtful and tender,


how exquisitely beautiful,


careful and loving was the plan behind all that had happened to her from the very day she was born.


And she knew now that never,


not for one single,


solitary instant,


had she been forgotten or overlooked.....


MERRY CHRISTMAS...DARLING !!!!


Gallico, P. Snowflake. Garden City, NY. Doubleday and company, 1953.
