Each year at the end of November it begins: my affinity with Christmas cards.
During most of the year, I let the mail pile up in our mailbox for several days before carrying it in the house and throwing away all the junk.But not in December. Because in December I can’t wait to see what treasures the mailman brings. I love to receive cards from friends and family…both who live close and far. Love it.With all of our pre-Christmas happenings this year, I contemplated skipping Christmas cards altogether.
But then, each day when I hit the mailbox, I got lured right back in.
I thought, maybe I’m not too busy after all.
I remembered how much I love how Christmas cards freeze each year in time for our family. Someday I can line them up and laugh about our crazy styles and cry about how my babies have changed over the years.
So, I whipped up a simple-as-pie design and sent the cards out to our families and dear friends near and far. And then my heart got all warm and fuzzy when I actually dropped them off at the post office.
Because this is one tradition that in my book, cannot be skipped.
