Making people smile is a warm feeling.
All the money in the world doesn't give you the same feeling.

Seeing the smile you brought just by visiting,is a great feeling.
To know your pressence brings out peoples love and caring feelings.

To me that is what the xmas spirit is showing your feelings.

Nice Barb, I like it when people, smile nice poem. I ment to tell you awhile back, the one that really got me was the "manure smells" a "Request" poem. I laugh for two days, had tears in my eyes. I have a hard time laughing, but you hit my funny bone. Thanks! Keep writing any kind stuff, good fun! Go fo broke! See ya!

aw thank-you nice comment. That person ticked me off for being rude it's easy to think of rude things when you are angry. As soon as I thouht of it I wrote it down sorry if I made you in pain by laughing. So when you say "it only hurts when I laugh" you mean it. Thanks again.:)
