My Most Favorite Christmas Present ! -- by Member: Westly Shaw, USA -- added: 12/8/2019 2:32:58 AM

Denis Barter said:



Thereby speaks a very wise man! Relationships with others, is ever a blessing. No matter how briefly we know them, or for how long a time it might be, the effect others have on our lives is priceless. More so when their friendship is given with no strings attached! A kind word: a joke in passing: a shoulder to cry on when things get tough! All much appreciated - especially when you're sad and down on your luck! Even long distant, never met friendships - such as those we enjoy with others on VN, play a big part in our lives, if we allow them to do so! No better time than the upcoming December days. Fondest regards Pauline and Denis.

If the writer could be any Christmas Ornament on a Christmas tree what onewould you be? -- by Member: Westly Shaw, USA -- added: 12/8/2019 1:44:49 AM

Denis Barter said:



A great idea Westly and yes I agree with you. It may well switch on a little light in Christmas celebrations for folks less fortunate than ourselves! It may sound an easy assignment, but it can and doubtless will be, much harder than it looks. I think we should make it one of several Challenges - what better way to celebrate the Festive Season upcoming? So there we have it folks. A choice of two topics and why not write a poem on both? Help make this a month of Challenges in which all can enjoy! You have a wide audience waiting! Young, old or in between, now's your chance to win more fans and followers, as you impress readers with your literary(?) skills! Ciao for now. Denis aka Rhymer.

Here another idea poems on Your Magical Christmas train The child within me at Christmas I'm sorry you were disappointed on number of responses to the challenge. I thought the ones you did get was good and worst reading. I have been asked why I never took the baton and yes I been asked. I had to many challenges with responding to poems I have read. Here an example I read a poem and thought the writer was writing about a good wife ,and it turned out to be a good mattress. I enjoy the challenges since age of 3 when it first started. as I learned from others and all the challenges that came along with it . It would be a shame to not have the challenges at all!

Yes Betty Your absence was noted, but knowing what you've been through of late, I'm not a bit surprised. Good to see you battling the odds and winning through despite all. Only hope it gets easier as time goes by! Late matters not, it is a great write and one that echoes in many others, I'm sure. It certainly resonates with me. Only exception? We made our "Tryst" in front of a log fire! Me? Nervously wondering how I had the nerve and audacity to ask her to be my wife! My own Memorable Moments are many but the one really moment is one that has lasted 65 years - Anniversary 2 weeks from today. Every time I see the one and only Love of my life, I relive that first meeting of ours! An accidental - Literally, for I ran into her bi ycle with mine) meeting - that became a "Moment" that shaped my life and future in a way I never thought possible! Her birthday - 89 tomorrow - will be celebrated as yet another milestone, along a very long, but enjoyable and often, exciting journey, which we began back in 1954, and one, never I've regretted beginning! The Future? We just keep a positive outlook and enjoy every minute! Seldom argue and never go to bed angry! Even when I know I'm right, I always say sorry - as does Pauline - no blame awarded - before we turn out the light! Will try to write an e-mail later, but I've more snow to move! The Seventh 7 Fall to date - I've had to shovel away! This upcoming Winter/ Fall has proven to be a very volatile Season as yet, and more of the same - worse perhaps? - up[coming in the week ahead! Fondest regards, Pauline and Denis.

It is a pleasure to read works from your treasure trove; always with an eloquent quill and a moving write, Nishu. Signs are everywhere but not many may read them as you do! Good day to you.
