It’s Christma once again. How is it goin’? I received a table tennis (without the table! Haha!) set and a shirt from my manitos. In return, I also gave them shirts. Haha! How about you? I hope you are enjoying your Christmas vacation with your family and friends.
This Christmas, I would like to put up again a tree in my heart, and instead of hanging presents, I would like to put the names of all my friends. Close friends and not so close friends. The old friends and the new friends. Those that I see every day and the ones that I rarely see. The ones that I always remember and the ones that I sometimes forget. The ones that are always there and the ones that seldom are. The friends of difficult times and the ones of happy times. Friends who, without meaning to, I have hurt, or, without meaning to have hurt me. Those that I know well and those I only know by name. Those that owe me little and those that I owe so much. My humble friends and my important friends. The names of all those that have passed through my life no matter how fleetingly.
A tree with very deep roots and very long and strong branches so that their names may never be plucked from my heart. So that new names from all over may join the existing ones. A tree with a very pleasant shade so that our friendship may take a moment of rest from the battles of life. “May the happy moments of Christmas brighten every day of the new year”. These are my sincere wishes…and all the best for …2009!
