Merry Xmas!!!

 Hello ye flocks of the earth!!! At last, it's Christmas time!!!

That's the time of the year when people get closer, when there are good vibrations everywhere; when we get to spend more time with our relatives, wives and husbands; when we get to see old-time friends who dont't live nearby anymore; it is a time to forgive, a time to accept, a time to ponder and a TIME TO LOVE! I wish everyone a happy-very-jolly-merry-berry-Christmas! And here's a Christmas poem for you:


Our Christmas

Christmas came early for you and for me
Christmas with no gifts to open
Christmas without any yuletide tree
Christmas with words of love spoken
Christmas was walking to York hand in hand
Christmas in awe at the Minster
Christmas togetherness was just what we planned
Christmas was chaffed legs and blisters

Christmas was cups of tea served early morn
Christmas was being together
Christmas was loving from dusk until dawn
Christmas remembered forever
Christmas was driving through floods for the view
Christmas ‘our planning’ was starting 
Christmas our Christmas meant so much to me
Christmas our bitter sweet parting

A great teacher is NOT somebody who makes no mistakes, but rather somebody who is able to reflect on mistakes already made....
