A holiday message to TCS...

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
We all have in common
Our love for our cats,
But this season reminds me
We have more than that.
We all share the trials
And the triumphs of living,
Our joys and our sorrows,
Our needing, our giving...

In this special place,
We have all found good friends
Whose fellowship cheers us
And warms us, and lends
To our lives a dimension
And depth that we treasure...
A circle of those we hold
Dear beyond measure.

I'm grateful to all of you
On The Cat Site
For all that you are...
And on Christmas Night
When I count my blessings,
Though we’re far apart,
Each one of you
Will be here in my heart.

I hope everybody here is having a wonderful holiday season and gets to celebrate with the ones they love the most...

... and then get on here to gripe about the crappy sweater from your MIL

well, i don't have a MIL... plus, i found out my parents are giving me a gift! they feel sorry for me 'cause i don't have anyone else to give me a present [my sister & brothers have either spice (plural of spouse in our family ) or kids to give to them]. actually, mom said they saw something perfect for me - i'm getting it tomorrow!
plus this lovely poem from Carol, my SS pressies - i got/am getting some good stuff this year!

Carol, that was so beautiful. Your talent for writing always brings a smile to my face.

That being said, I need to tell youse something - we have been estranged from my MIL for a few years now - all for a very good reason, and she has tried to alienate my husbands family from us - but the good news is, his sister has finally contacted him and sent us christmas presents - we sent her presents as well. It is really wonderful that she is her own person and made contact again.

You really do have a talent for writing Carol! Your kindness and thoughtfulness epitomizes why I have stayed with TCS for all of these years. We truly have an outstanding community here, and your sentiments describe us perfectly.

And because I can't begin to express myself as well as you can, I'll fall into my comfortable south side lingo: Back atcha girlfriend!!
