Just a thought... Isn't it funny that at Christmas something in you gets so lonely for - I don't know what exactly, but it's something that you don't mind so much not having at other times. [Kate L. Bosher]
Just two weeks until Christmas now and, of course, one more sleep until Hannukah. Are you sending out cards this year? I'll be mailing a few, which will be more than we did last year when we were in the midst of a move, but not as many as I'll likely send out next year when I have a little less on my plate.
There's still something special about getting cards - whether in thanks, for a birthday or for Christmas - something no e-cards, no matter how lovely, will ever replace. But I recognize that once you factor in postage and the price of the cards, it's just not an affordable option for a lot of people. Perhaps ours is the last or next-to-last generation that will send out cards at this time of year, who knows?
I love this poem that my friend Jay Kennedy sent out a few years back and it's my pleasure to share it with you this year. Maybe you'll want to cut and paste it, or just give it a listen on my audio journal. Rob's put some nice Christmas music to it. I don't know who wrote it but I'm grateful and hope you enjoy this. (It lines up perfectly on my computer; I'm sorry if it doesn't on yours.)
Thank you for coming by - and tomorrow I'll share the story of my favourite gift this Christmas. And I don't even know personally the woman who sent it.
