Twas the week before Christmas,
and all through this site,
too many people are upset,
and it just isn't right.
My sugar is spiking, my blood pressure is high,
some are so mad, they are saying goodbye.
I read all this morning, and then took a nap,
when I came back here, there is still quite a flap
He said, she said, who could be wrong,
folks this is Christmas, we should all sing a song.
I know this is corny, with no rhyme or reason,
where is our spirit, let's all enjoy this season.
I could go on some more, and butcher this poem
Let's have peace & harmony on our dc home.

I'm getting a brain freeze and having a senior moment, so I will end this misery for all who read this.I apparently got a bit testy today, so I am directing this to me as well. Let's let John and staff take care of the sites issues, and all of us keep posting and learning, and giving our advice. We can still be passionate, but respectfull of others too. As my Dad used to say: "Don't get your bowels in an uproar." With that I will say "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night"

That was a lovely poem, Jim! I enjoyed it. We all came to this site because we were searching for understanding, compassion, answers, encouragement, help with our struggles, and to find some friends who we could share our concerns with. People who are going through the same things on a daily basis. Things just kinda got out of hand there for a while. Hopefull, it will get better, and we can all look back on this as just one more experience to learn from. We have got to take it for what it is. Merry Christmas, Jim to you and your family. Love and great big hugs to all. Your friend Sue T.

P.S. I've got to straighten up; I'm getting a bad reputation on here… LOL

My grandson got a bit carried away with his artistic talent while licking the chocolate frosting off the beaters. Of course "papa" gave a bit of encouragement! Him and his mom live with us, and he is what keeps me going with his antics.Glad you liked it, guess I'm a poet who don't know it.
