Hello Friends and Happy Sunday, I hope you enjoyed that extra hour of sleep!
Now we can talk about the holidays?
My grandmother loved to write and send out greeting cards, she would buy them for every holiday and special occasion. Each year she would send a Christmas card to her more than 20 grands and 40 great grandchildren, I still have boxes of them in storage.
Beginning in November, as soon as the holiday season began her first purchase would be for Christmas cards and they would be written and addressed before Thanksgiving. She loved writing little notes inside and did it every year up until 2008, when she could no longer after becoming bedridden. That year, I bought the cards and helped her write and address them and it was also the last time because she passed away in May 2009, at the age of 98.
One year we took a family picture that included her and put a copy of it into each of the cards and she absolutely loved it. I have often regretted that it didn’t become an annual tradition because it would have been nice for her grands and great-grandchildren to have those pictures today.
