Christmas Cheers for all of you, My DEARs

Updated on December 21, 2010

Very Merry Christmas

Appreciation and Praise

Such a lucky woman am I

Fortune, indeed, has come my way

For when I took the time to try

To express the things I had to say

A warm support flooded in

From Wonderful Hub Pages friends

What would I have done if no one read

That surely was my deepest dread

That my words would fall on deaf ears

Isn’t that what everyone fears?

But, no…very soon followers I had

Who liked my words and made me glad

Encouragement and praise, hey, “that’s good!”

Helped me to believe that I could

Join this fine group of friends

Who has helped me, greatly

To meet my ends

And though some things were hard to say

I risked to say it, anyway

And found kindred souls who felt the same

Which spurred the thought

So Glad I came

To this fine place where we speak our mind

And, happily, we often find

that many others feel as we do

And this is enough to see us through

To keep on writing, talking and more

Afterall, isn't this what Hub Pages is for?


I’ll continue to write and read and love

And send Blessings from Far Above

To all the incredible artists here

Who have given me ample cheer

And so, my friends, I say Thank YOU

For allowing me to follow through

And learn so much from those of you

Who know very well how to

Write, draw, imagine and ask

You’re all far greater than this task!!

What code did you use on your html template to get it to work? I would be ever so grateful if you could share that with me, or where you got it too! Thank you and for the origami video, etc. :-)
