Christmas cards lay fanned out and spread out on the living room floor, more left to address than already finished.
Dog-eared Christmas cookie recipes from well loved books and wrinkled magazine clippings sit on the kitchen counter, but I can’t make these goodies ’til I buy the ingredients.
These fine, fun things might get done . . . and they might not.
But one thing that must, must be wrapped and ready to go is my Christmas gift to you.
First, let me say thank you, friends. Thank you to you for being supportive, kind and true-blue friends to me this year.
Thank you for giving me encouragement–fresh air for my soul.
Thank you for believing in me–through wonderful and worrisome days.
Thank you for loving me–and seeing the best in me.
Y’all are such a gift to me, and today I have a gift for you!
These words come straight from my heart, and I pray they settle comfortably in yours today. If you want to print the above blessing and send it as a gift to a friend or two of your own, choose from any of the free pdf options with varying borders below:

Your poem made me cry big tears. This year has been rough–like none before.
Sometimes it feels like you’ve totally blown it and just want to quit and give up. Thanks so much for you kind words of encouragement to us this year. They have meant the world to me.
You’ve gotten me through many a trial!! I know many many more trials lay ahead for me!
Have a blessed Christmas with family and friends!
Aw Beth, I’m so sorry it’s been such a rough year. May 2015 bring rest and relief in more ways than one.
So thankful for your encouraging friendship here, Beth. Merry, Merry Christmas to you and yours. xo

Thankful for you, friend. YOU are a treasure, and I love you.
