From Me: To: YOU!

To: One and all
From: Someone who knows your name!

The dictionary says:

Friend (frend) noun.
1. A person whom one knows, likes and trusts.
2. A person with whom one is allied in a struggle or cause; comrade.
3. One who supports, sympathizes with, or patronizes a group.
4. An acquaintance.

The dictionary makes several not so small ommissions.
It doesn't speak of the years that a friendship endures,
it doesn't mention that friendship can flourish even though you've never met in person and are separated by many miles,
it doesn't mention the support, understanding and comfort a friend can offer or
the anguish you cannot escape from when a friend is dying.
The dictionary, I'm afraid, cannot begin to define the word:

F is for fantastic, the way you sometimes make me feel
R is for reliable, now that's a great deal
I is for independence, cause we're all so unique
E is for equal, in all we do and speak
N is for necessary, cause life without friends
Does not supply the soul with a purpose to our end
S is for support, friends always do you know
H is for happiness when the friendships grow
I is for ideas, we share them with each other
P is for the privilege of knowing one another.

I can't imagine getting through a single day without the people who have come to mean so much to me. Here is were I come when I need to feel comfort and strength. So I will leave you with this. My wish for each of you is that you may know peace, comfort and joy for all of your days.
Thank you so much for all that you have given me.


Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.

Wouldn't you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go

Where everybody knows your name,
and they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.

You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows
your name.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
