Easing into the Season...
So I decided to switch my focus. Christmas cards.
Sending Christmas cards takes work, but I believe it is the perfect way to start the season. It's easy and it is your basic assembly-line activity. Today I found the cards I wanted to send, along with some matching stationary for the annual Christmas update letter. I had a little glitch in that I cannot open my computer files with last year's Christmas card list, so part of this evening was spent creating a new one. I found the list changed as Life has put new friends in my path these last few years.
Christmas cards encompass what the season is about--thinking of others and reaching out to those we care about. My list is comprised of family, school friends, church families, college roommates, former co-workers, and local friends. Each of them has played a role in Life's chapters and each of them is important. They all mean so much to me.
Little gifts from the heart, they are. The best kinds of gifts.
