The Spirit of Giving, Year After Year
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  At this time of year, the Spirit of Giving abounds as people
rush here and there to buy cards and gifts for their friends and loved

However, in the MMDigest, the Spirit of Giving lasts all year long,
year after year after year.  So, I offer all of you this little poem
that I wrote, and again thank all who give their time, wisdom, and
knowledge freely.

  As the Summer Days get shorter
  And the leaves begin their change,
  I think about the friends I have
  And one thing strikes me strange.

  We sit around for many hours,
  Playing all the games we know.
  Looking at the rest of life, like
  It is some great picture show.

  Actors we do play our parts,
  And though we have no script.
  The pieces always fall in place,
  And we never loose our grip.

  Another scene is unfolding now,
  Our parts are not so clear.
  But we will always be good friends,
  Year after year after year.

Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas.

John A Tuttle
