what do we love about christmas??

What Do We Love About Christmas?
What do we love about Christmas; Does our delight reside in things?
Or are the feelings in our hearts The real gift that Christmas brings.
It's seeing those we love, And sending Christmas cards, too,
Appreciating people who bring us joy Special people just like you.

sending all my crafting friends a big hug ~ thankyou for visiting my blog and all your support through the anxious ,tearful times in 2009 (lets hope 2010 brings happiness..... and all the things we hope for) thankyou again for your messages and e-mails.
see you in 2010!!! xxxxxxx0000xxxxxxxxxxx0000
