Faithful Friends Who are Dear to Us

…Gather near to us once more…

Some people just stay, whether you deserve it or not.  Some people trust their hearts to you for a lifetime, not because you see them a lot or stay in touch like you should or are even a very good friend at all.  And when you decorate your “family tree,” the non-designer version filled all that really truly matters from Chrsitmases past, and you come across ornaments which had been tucked into cards years ago, and little notes, or when you hang what a friend once made that has become an heirloom to you now, when you remember – regardless of all the miles, yes, your friends have once again come near.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,  Let your heart be light

From now on, our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,  Make the Yule-tide gay,

From now on,  our troubles will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,

Happy golden days of yore.

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Gather near to us once more.

Through the years we all will be together,

If the [Lord] allows

Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.

And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

LYRICS:  Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Merry Christmas DEAR Friends, far and near!

There isn’t room to list all who have been true friends to me throughout the years. But they must know?

In Iowa, and Minnesota, Indiana and North Dakota (not to mention South Dakota), Kansas, Washington, Tennesee…Robert, Louisiana, and even in Nebraska!  In Montana, and Oregon, Texas and Chi-town, and close to home {Frederick, and Brighton, Denver, Longmont, Boulder, Firestone, Arvada, and the rest}… really all around…

SEE JUDY GARLAND HERSELF SING IT!  (non-embeddable)  From the movie, “Meet Me in St. Louis”
