There is a list of folks I know
all written in a book
And every year at Christmas time
I go and take a look.

For each name stands for someone
who has touched my life...

My husbands best mate of 70 years passed away 2 months ago. They grew up together since the age of five. It was only natural that he was our Best Man at our wedding. We all lived in their home town until he moved interstate 13 years ago, and we did our tree change 6 years ago...

I have one such person in my life... she has been there for me since we...
I have a friend, we attended Primary & Secondary school, shared our first pay packet, cigarette etc., we lost touch. We met up again and if was as if we had never been apart. That was until 3 years ago she went to live in England, I missed her our daily chats and confessions...

For no matter what I pray for
You always know what's best!

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.

At the end of the long walks from the stream to...
