It seems for the past 4 or 5 years we put ourselves in a dilemma at this time of year, do we send Christmas cards this year? It is true postage continues to go up, but that is not our controlling factor.
I read many entries on blogs and on FB and in comments, ‘I have ceased to send cards.’ The main problem we have is, ‘I do not want someone who has stopped, to feel bad or obligated when they receive one from us.
Soooooo this year reluctantly we cut the list away back. WE are dropping from more than 100 to about 30. Back to some family and the friends with whom we do not keep in contact with via the net. We have friends who are too old for the net .
Still we feel a little bad about it. Do you still send cards?
It was always a warm feeling to take them to the Post Office knowing our love was leaving in every direction.
But everything is subject to change. We no longer put up a large tree. But riding under our bed is a 24” ceramic Christmas Tree. Also stored are Christmas nick-knacks that Sherry spreads over the coach to let us know it is Christmas.
We have reached the point that we are each others Christmas present. We don’t need a thing, we have been blessed above our wildest dreams and honestly we do not have a lot of room for anything else.
Since Sherry is in the Card mood, I thought I would ask around.
PS: Off to Florida this morning, see you there!
Now I would find room for one of these!
