Right after Thanksgiving, I sent out all my Christmas cards – they were ready for mailing since the first of November. Along with the good news that the Farmhouse title issues are being worked out, the first Christmas cards are already coming in the mail. Every year I postin my Country Diary the most beautiful Christmas card received ; also, the first and last one (the straggler). The first card we received was attached to our garbage can. It was from the pickup crew, a beautiful Christmas Tree card.
The 1st card
I love to receive Christmas cards. After I post the chosen ones in this year Country Diary, the rest will become bookmarks and inspiration for other fun projects.
If you have not sent out your holiday cards yet, I would like to pass on to you an address that my friend gave me. It is probably the most important Holiday card that I sent this year. It was addressed to: A Recovering American Soldier c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center 6900 Georgia Ave NW, Washington DC 20307.
Sometimes, the people who have given all, so we can have a happy Christmas with our families would like to hear how we feel about the sacrifices they have made, in fighting for our Country. I invite you to send that special Christmas or Holiday card. Even if it is the only one that you send this year.
I will have Joy receiving this year’s Christmas cards and can’t wait to have my private little card contest. The winner will be proudly displayed in the first page of my 2010 Country Diary (I order mine through Doubleday Book Club). I started this tradition a while ago and love to wait for the cards to arrive in anticipation of the “winner.”
