Love in the snail mail......
Thank you to Brian, RxBambi and Graciela for stopping by on the 7th and 8th for sharing their stories....watch for a prize in your snail mail!
I sent out my Christmas cards this weekend! I found the most wonderful cards with gorgeous pictures of Santa Claus on them and it gave me great pleasure to prepare them and send them out. My beloved Mom J used to send out over 100 Christmas picture cards every year.....all of us kids and grandkids would gripe about having to get a picture done every year for the card, but in truth, we all looked forward to those cards. The Christmas after she left us I recreated an old card that she had sent out in the 40's with a picture of herself as a young woman, letting all of her Christmas card recipients know that she was gone. Sending out all 100 of them was a huge undertaking and it gave me an appreciation for what she did each year.
This year I sent out a few additional cards outside of MY usual list of recipients, I included a few to "Recovering American Soldier"......Please, if you have an extra card or two, or you have access to a class of kids, send a card to a Recovering American Soldier, here is the address:
A Recovering American Soldier
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue NW
Washington, D.C. 20307-5001
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season and that your weekend was divine.
