Christmas Cards

Among one of the most favorite of traditions around the homestead is Christmas cards. The children and I eagerly await the mailman. Such enthusiasm when we are the one that gets to collect the days treasures.
Christmas cards are a bother to some, but to me... they are a treasure. It means that someone cared enough to send a greeting to our family. And I feel the same, when I send one, it is filled with love as it goes out into the world.
I have said this before... My Nannie Red used to say it, My Moma says it and now I say it.
If someone loves you or thinks enough of you to send a Christmas card, then you think enough of them and display it somewhere in your home.
And, that is just what we do!
Along the cedar posts in our home, lined with garland hangs our Christmas cards.
Each one special and hold a place of honor in our home.

They make me smile, each time I look at them it feels me with special thoughts and thankfulness for those who loved us enough to send one our way.
So to those of you who have...
Thank you and know we are grateful for your kindness!
Merry, Merry!
