Christmas Cards

I love Christmas cards. I love to send them and I love to find them in my mailbox. This year I mailed/handed out 85 cards! When I go through my Christmas list, it reminds me of how blessed I am to have so many people in my life. Some are old friends and some are new. Some are family members in other states and some live across town. Some I haven't spoken to in a long while and this time of year makes it easy to keep in touch.

A lot of people don't send out Christmas cards any more...either because of the time it takes...or the cost involved. But I love knowing that hopefully my cards will bring a smile to the recipients and help to make their holiday a little more cheery.

By the way, a friend sent me an email saying, "You know those two or three (or more) extra Christmas cards that you have left over and never know whether to keep or throw away? Here is a very good use for them. The Central MS Correctional Facility is asking that any unused or extra Christmas cards you have to be sent to the chaplain for distribution to inmates to send to their families and children that they are unable to be with this Christmas."

Send cards and envelopes to:

Central MS Correctional Facility
Attn: Chaplain Kelly
Box 88550
Pearl MS 39208

Thanks again for the Christmas card! This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions...the sending and giving of cards. :)

BTW, you've been tagged! I just created a Christmas meme at my blog and I'd love for you to participate:

Hope you enjoy it and as the Swazis say...Kisimusi Lomuhle (Happy Christmas)!
