Just a note to say
how much you mean to me
throughout these past years,
the last few months,
this holiday season,
this past week,
during our last weekend in 2016 year
and for last night.
I don’t know if anyone has said this to you?
You are one of the most important people in my life.
Maybe you think I have been too critical.
Or, you haven’t thought of me at all.
It’s okay because I often remember how you took time for me.
So, we can spend a lot of time together,
or we can stay apart.
Either way, you are to me a real blessing.
Thank you for all that you do where you are now,
for your thoughts and prayers,
for your interest and indications,
and even for the raised eyebrows
and rolling eyes as I write and publish silly things.
Have a wonderful new year!
Lawrence J. J. Leonard
