Merry Christmas Cards

Lots of Grinches report that Christmas cards are a thing of the past. Too expensive. Too time consuming to prepare. The post office is a dead letter black hole. Well, I say Bah Humbug! Isn't it nice to see a cheery red envelope in your mailbox?

I send out approximately sixty cards. Addressing the cards, I think of the people - friends or family - and reflect on this tradition of best wishes, good cheer, and a hearty hello.

In return, we receive cards, across the miles, filled with notes, news, and a connection.

Here's a homemade card from my cousin Jen. Absolutely delightful!

Pictures are worth a thousand words. Kids are growing up, Rangers were in the World Series (that was a big theme this year in Texas), and a year is chronicled with smiles.

Merry Christmas!
