Do you save your Christmas cards ~ Every year
aren't these just the sweatiest Christmas cards ? I found all of them online and thought how wonderful it is that someone not only saved them over the years but that someone else thought they were special enough to share them with the entire world ..
I save our cards and every year I pull them out and go through them. It brings me such joy to remember all the special people that have come and gone through out our 25 years together.
I still have our very first card it was from my husbands grandparents she wrote ~ Merry Christmas to the new Mr and Mrs. So simple but so perfect She passed away right before Christmas the following year so of course that makes it even more special..
and then we have the picture ones of all our friends children/ pets that you can't help but to giggle at. A lot changes in 25 years ..
and then there is the ones from just last year. The ones that really shouldn't mean too much just yet, but they become ones that you will treasure forever because some horrible disease took your friend or love one away from you.
I have no doubts that one day someone will be going through all my belongings and thinking this women must have been a real pack rat .. geez she kept everything .. lol
and that will be OK with me cause for now I am going to sit right here and reread each and everyone of them. I am going to laugh out loud, I'm going to cry, I'm going to remember all the beautiful times we got to share . I'm going to wait on the postman and open each card knowing that it is so much more than just a card .. it is a gift that can be treasured forever..
Sending warm blessing to each of you. To my dear friend Alvin I send lots of love as I know the pain seems unbearable but I promise your sweet memories will help you through.
To my big brother hugs and kisses you are forever in my heart..
hugs ya'll, Cherry
