For years we sent Christmas cards out and in almost every one included a hand written note. Later, when we got our first home computer, we changed to sending Christmas letters in the cards. Now with social media making communication a part of our days I’ve discontinued using the postal service. But everything has a flip side and having the annual letters was like keeping a condensed journal of the year. I’ve enjoyed looking back at those letters that are still digitally stored.
Here in Jubilee they are starting a memoir writing class and I’m thinking maybe I need to write a condensed journal of our life. It’s been a great one, full of love and family. We may take a breath and count our blessings on Thanksgiving but for me it’s the Christmas season that wakes me up to all I have to be thankful for.
Kids, grandkids, and now great grands make me happy and as I get older and the year fly’s by faster I value each precious minute. The first picture was 2017 and Kennedy’s first one. The second is this years.
May your Christmas be filled with the warmth of love.
