Christmas Cards!

Don't you just love going to the mailbox to be greeted by Christmas cards from family and friends? I sure do!  We live in a time where everyone is busily living their lives and rarely do we get a chance to really know how one another is doing. That is why I am grateful for Christmas cards, and letters. I saw on facebook recently that someone thinks they are just a chance to brag about how well you are doing. I don't see it that way at all. We want to know how others are doing and what is going in their lives!

One dear friend, whose husband was our Bishop when we were at BYU, wrote that her second husband passed away after their six year marriage. We were so sad for her, but so grateful that she chose to inform us. We love her (and her first husband, who passed away around eight years ago) and want to know what is going on in her life. Hopefully, next time we visit Utah we can stop by and visit with her. She has always been an example to me, and someday I hope to be like her, at least a little!

So, send out your Christmas cards, or Valentine's cards, or whatever! People are grateful to hear how you are doing, because they love you.
