For many years I found
Christmas cards a lovely communication,
but now when I think of writing them out,
they only bring me frustration.
Who will send me cards this year?
Friends and family I see and chat with everyday?
Or only those who receive them from me…
I think it is time for re-evaluation.
I love to get the updated letters and photos
as the children grow and change.
The cards that only come with a signature
feel like they’ve been sent from obligation.
This year I will send them out
to people who I do not see often,
those who are not on social media –
long distance friends and relations.
So only send me cards this year
if you truly wish me heartfelt blessings.
And know that for you my friends and family
I wish you lovely blessings with affection,
adoration, admiration and celebration.
