I am old fashion. I still write Christmas Cards. My list is shorter than it once was. I have my address book, old addresses crossed out. I pause and remember lost loved ones whose names are still in my book. I still have a few folks not on fb or email that I send cards to every year.
I love the time spent. I sit in front of my tree and write a Christmas letter, taking a moment to relive the ups and downs of the year past. I choose a photo and cards, pick up some Christmas stamps and write a message to the folks I love.
This year I made my own cards with bits and pieces of Christmastime’s past.
I enjoy catching up with people. Kids I babysat for have their own children and my school buds sending their kids to college….Victory and defeat. I love the sharing and the caring.
Nothing perfect, just a gift of time. I got them all done even with the Stooges and chores. I am feeling Joyful and Triumphant! Now on the baking and wrapping and shopping and packing.
