tangible love...

how do I begin
to thank all of you
for the encouragement and inspiration
you filled me up with
this past year
how do I do that
all I know for sure
is that without all of you stopping by here
graciously giving me the support
that you do
it would be impossible for me to be the person I am today
so on this special day
I just want to wish each and everyone of you
very merry christmas
with more love and warmth and laughter and sugar cookies
you could have ever imagined
to say
thank you
thank you
thank you
from the bottom of my heart
