Add to the festivity — Holiday Cards

filled with good wishes, and
delivered to friends near and far.

Okay I admit it -- I’ve been slow on the draw (pardon my pun) on this one.
I don’t have a great excuse I’m sorry. I know that you’re all working as hard,
or harder than I am. I just haven’t had a lot of time to think about the holidays
this fall.

Last weekend we bought three trees so we might be able to have some kind of
celebration socially distanced with family, or with friends outside. Maybe that
was a fantasy, but just seeing that greenery already made us feel better.

Today we began writing the cards, which I picked up from my printer yesterday.
In the middle of the decision to start having a Christmas feeling, our washing machine
broke down, actually ripping apart a pair of my husbands pants. So we spent a long
afternoon today looking at washing machines, and trying to figure out if we could
get one delivered right away. This is wash day no matter what else it is. Nope not

To calm myself down and quit worrying about everything started to write my cards.
If you are my friend, and know that I don’t know your address, please send it to me,
and in the best of all possible worlds I will send you a card.

Whether you get a card from me or not, thank you so much for all of the cheer,
inspiration, support, and excitement you’ve shared with me this year. It has been
a strange one, but to be alive, to love family and friends, and to live in this beautiful
country is definitely a formula for happiness.

Stay safe and stay healthy.
