I am alive and living well in Adelaide. Have a grown family and am currently "owned" by a very aloof black and white cat named Chloe. I love to read and write and am a cruciverbalist.
I love this beautiful world we live in and I find joy in the little things of life and I wake thankful each morning for the gift of life. My journey has not been an easy one but I feel I am ready to fly and I am who I was born to be.
I wish you love and laughter, sunbeams and moonbeams, health and happiness, music and magic, and diamonds in your sky.
It takes a clear and focused mind in order to get into the spirit of writing the Christmas cards to family and loved ones.
Here are a few thoughts that one might consider before starting the writing:
Create a draft.
Ask yourself: why do I write this card?
Write your Christmas mail with a positive spirit.
Keep it short and interesting.
Only send religious Christmas cards to Christians. For the rest of your circle of friends and acquaintances use "Season's Greetings".
Watch your penmanship and spelling.
Don't forget to sign the card and put your address on the back of the envelope.
Keep an updated address book. Be sure to also keep track of changes in the marital status of your friends and family as well as the names of their partners. The same goes for loved ones who may have passed away.
Make the writing of your Christmas mail an event and not a chore. Light a few candles, pour yourself a glass of your favorite drink, play Christmas music or have a movie running in the background.
This is all about memories and making memories, sharing and caring - all about Christmas and the love and joy it brings. There will be recipes, helpful hints, seasonal things - all about Christmas. So have yourself a merry little Christmas.
