Christmas 2010

We
began
this year
with  hopes 
and  promises
that our lives would
be touched with good
health, love, and happiness.
Through this time, some of us
have had to cope with pain, loss,
heartbreak, and tough times. I've seen
amazing people undertake challenging
situations and endure with the strength
they found within themselves. I saw people
get back on their feet to take the next step, and
others have grieved and have woken too see light
in a new day. There are those who have been our
crutch to lean on, our shoulder to cry on, the smiles
and hugs we rely on.....to go on. I pray that those who
seek, shall find; and those that give, will share their gifts.
May the envy and greed of a closed mind be redeemed by a
tolerant and receptive open heart. Together may we find that
every day we are given a chance to make a difference in, not only
ours, but in the lives of those around us. So, rest you merry gentle
people, allow heaven and nature to sing, enjoy the comfort that brings
you joy, and let there
be peace on
earth.

    When I copy and pasted this poem, it lost half of its shape of the tree. Yet it still has all the words intact.
